Our forest school, is run by our Forest School lead and her deputy. Children in both the nursery and out of school club, take part in forest school activities each week.
Forest School is a child-centered inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.
Forest School does not focus on outcome, rather the process. There are no assessment criteria, so we are free to follow the children's interests in the moment.
We offer the opportunity to build knowledge, skills and understanding around several areas, including (but not limited to), fire, tools, and nature. And most importantly, it is FUN!
From September 2023, we have expanded our forest school provision and we now offer forest school sessions, from our baby room right through to our out of school children.
We have incorporated yoga and mindfulness into these sessions, to support our children's mental health.
We offer a forest school out of school club, three nights a week on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
