Wellbeing is the foundation of our Forest School practice. Through recognising the social, emotional and physical needs of our children, we provide the guidance and facilitation for our time in nature.
We create learner-inspired experiences based on exploration and discovery, and we recognise opportunities to mentor holistic growth over the course of long-term sessions.
In developing our Forest School, we nurture a culture based on collaboration. We embrace challenges so that we can allow, over time, children to blossom in character, build resilience and develop a greater sense of connection, with nature.
