Free to explore nature, a child’s senses come alive, which enhances their creative and imaginative play. Our Nursery embraces the outdoors as an inspirational learning environment focused on the child’s learning needs rather than specific outcomes. As the children explore and experience the natural world on a regular and sustained basis, a Forest School is a unique way of building confidence, boosting self esteem, learning new life skills and promoting independence through hands on learning experiences.
The idea of taking the classroom outside was originally conceived in Sweden in the 1950s and this type of nursery is now commonplace throughout Scandinavia and many European countries. Being outside allows a child to reconnect with nature and gain a practical understanding of the world around them.
All learning is play-based and child-led. Time and space are limitless and there is no constraint on how long one child engages in an activity. This makes holistic development easier to achieve than in a classroom. It is particularly important for children to have the freedom to choose and express themselves creatively. If not, their innate talents may be stifled.
