We have run over 5 years of Forest School with an overwhelming positive response from both parents and the children who participated. Forest School allows your
child to learn in all areas of the EYFS in an exciting,non formal, open, free environment where children learn through exlporation, investigation, taking supervised risk and learning
through their own imagination and creativity.This is a well respected form of education which is very high profile in Scandinavia and is now becoming recognised in the UK for its learning benefits
and contribution to a child's independence, confidence and judgement.
Charlie, the Forest School Manager, has attended some "serious" Forest School Level 3 training and is continually developing her skills.
The Forest School team is growing in number and skills,Ruth has attended and completed Forest School Level 1 and is looking to complete Level 2 training in the near future,Vicki has
also completed her Level 2 as has Ali. Becky is completing her level 3 Forest School training and Tamzin has recently completed hers .
The Forest School team provide Forest School sessions for the children over 3 years of age in the nursery where they will have the opportunity to do whittling, make fires, toast
marshmallows, use bow-saws and a lot, lot more. The children have a fantastic time and learn to approach "risk" with respect with amazing results.
All children within the nursery have daily access to the outdoor area and woodland where although the youngest may not participate if full "Forest School" sessions they do have the
opportunity to have adventures with the support of the Forest School team and other members of staff.
