Nurture your child’s connection with nature…

If we want our children to move mountains, we first have to let them get out of their chairs.

What is Forest School?

Forest School provides learners with opportunities to connect to themselves, to others, to our land and to their source. It requires regular and repeated experiences in natural spaces combined with learning through inquiry, emergent and land based knowledge. The facilitator is not the holder of knowledge, rather a guide. The participants and the land work together to direct the learning in an authentic and natural manner that reflects the interests and needs of all involved. Learners find balance and resilience which allows them to thrive in a complex, busy and challenging world. We gain an awareness of community and a deeper connection with nature and our fellow human beings leaving us better suited to live authentic and rewarding lives rich with meaningful relationships. Our days will be filled with exploring and adventuring through the forest, supported risk taking, creative endeavours and meaningful connections to age appropriate curriculum. Together, we will play, problem solve, celebrate, reflect and discover ourselves and how we fit into the world around us.
