Forest School

 

I am extremely passionate about children learning from the outdoors and connecting with nature. Research has recently shown that prisoners are getting outdoors more than children.

 

As a childminder I make sure the children in my care get out whatever the weather. I want my setting to excel in this area and to support it I have recently undertook my Level 3 Forest School Leadership training.

 

We are lucky enough to have use of our own Forest School site as a local farm. Here we have access to a private 3 acre enclosed woodland which is beautiful. We are in the process of setting up a temporary structure so that we can spend more time over at the farm. 

 

The children play, explore and get muddy. We take part in exciting woodland themed adventures, have fun and get closer to nature.
