Forest Schools Training Ltd
What do they do?
Forest school is a long-term approach to education, for children, young people and adults, that maximises the benefits of learning in the outdoors. Whilst its roots are planted firmly in our best understanding of the theory of how children learn, it's practice puts the learner at the heart of their learning experience. From this fundamental platform, forest school offers children and young people the opportunity, over repeated visits, to engage with the rich natural diversity of the woodland environment to help build confidence, sensitivity, resilience and curiosity.
