Spending regular time in nature is a wonderful chance for children to connect with nature and enhance their wellbeing. Forest School is a long term programme where children benefit from regular outdoor sessions. Learn the theory and gain the practical skills in hands-on guided sessions, with our experiences tutors.

The process helps and facilitates more than knowledge-gathering, it helps learners develop socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically and intellectually. It creates a safe, non-judgemental nurturing environment for learners to try stuff out and take risks. Forest School inspires a deep and meaningful connection to the world and an understanding of how a learner fits within it. Forest School therefore, helps participants to become, healthy, resilient, creative and independent learners.
