We have run 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 exploration, 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.
Helen, the Forest School Leader, has attended some "serious"
Forest School Level 3 training and is continually developing her skills.
All children within the nursery have daily access to the outdoor area
and visits to the woodland where although the youngest may not participate in 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.
All children have access to freeflow outdoor play with mud
kitchen,built in sandpit, water play, messy play as well as gardening activities and visits to the local park for gross motor skills!
