What is Forest School?

Forest School is an inspirational way of learning introduced to the UK from Denmark in 1990’s.  Sessions are usually held in woodland with small group sizes and are child led.  The leader acts as a mentor to support the group to follow their interests.  Each session is planned  by reflecting on the previous one.  Invitations to learn are based on observations following what those attending would like to do.  What sets Forest School apart from other outdoor approaches is risky play is coupled with the holistic development of the child.  The social, physical, intellectual, communication, emotional and spiritual aspects of a child's development are nurtured making it a truly unique approach.
