Help your children get closer to nature

Forest Schools

Forest School is a Scandinavian concept from the early 20th century where children learn to build beneficial relationships with nature.

As the name suggests, it's schooling in the woods, but the children lead the way, with supervision. Children build dens, cook on fires and learn to use tools whilst developing social and physical skills.
