Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavour always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence - Maria Montessori

Forest Schools are designed to encourage childrens connectedness to the natural world along with their sense of stewardship of the environment. The sessions are child-led and planned activities are dependent on the needs of the group. We explore practical life skills in holistic, inclusive groups of mixed ages to inspire peer learning. Our woodland environment is managed and prepared in ways that ensure safety while supporting a childs ability to self-risk assess with confidence.
