About the Event

Nature Explorers is a safe place for children to learn and grow together in the outdoor and woodland environment. ‘It is about the process, not the product’ (Montessori). Forest School is a long-term process of frequent and regular sessions in a woodland environment and so we provide weekly, term-time sessions for children of different ages.(Sometimes, we run holiday programmes!)

Children are given the freedom to explore, create, learn, have fun, take supported and appropriate risks, and share community with others in the natural world. We encourage a love for nature and have a child-led approach. Children can play and have choice. We share group games, teamwork activities, stories, nature crafts and create items with real tools. We build fires and cook campfire treats together.

Forest School sessions take place in all weathers. Participants are strongly recommended and advised to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the outdoors. Some materials used in activities may stain clothing. Please dress for mud, mess and the weather. Campfire snacks are often provided, though we recommend bringing your own snacks and drinks in a backpack to keep you going throughout the session. Walking boots or wellies and waterproof clothing is recommended.

Baseline assessments will be taken at the start of the Forest School programme so that we can support children’s learning, development and needs. Parents will be involved in the process if possible. Activities are tailored for children’s needs and interests.

Our Forest School Leaders are qualified, DBS-checked and outdoor first aid trained.
