Forest School was conceived through the Scandinavian outdoor lifestyle.
It believes in fri’lufts'liv (free-air-life) – a cultural root of nature loving people.
It is a philosophy deeply rooted in Norway and Sweden, which has gained attention and momentum in the UK by instilling the importance of environmental education, facilitating true connection between nature and child.
Forest School is a long-term approach to education, for children, young people, families 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, its 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 or any natural environment to help build confidence, sensitivity, resilience and curiosity.
