Children in our preschool also have regular forest school sessions in our dedicated forest school gardens. Armed with wellington boots and waterproof overalls the children enjoy the sessions in all weathers.
Staff are qualified in Forest School Leadership and give the children learning opportunities in an outdoor setting with achievable goals for developing confidence. Experiences are hands-on and aim to achieve self esteem during a woodland visit or in our own natural environment.
Personal, social and technical skills are the focus of learning using the environment, weather, seasons, soil, trees, planting, tending to plants and vegetables, insects and their homes, tool use and cooking on an outdoor fire.
