Forest Kindergarten

Forest Kindergarten

Forest Kindergarten models a Forest School approach for the Early Years, and is based around child-centred learning through play. Forest Kindergarten offers young children frequent, regular play opportunities outdoors in a natural setting, often woodland, in almost all weathers throughout the year.

Children learn most effectively through play experiences. This is about creating interactions with people and the places where they play, learning to care for nature and the world in which we live. The concept of sustainability is best understood through experiential learning. Being outdoors in a natural setting enables children to develop a connection with the natural world that can lead to long-term environmental awareness, understanding and positive action.

Forest School

Forest School

Forest School is a long term developmental programme that takes place on a regular basis, typically once a week, for a minimum of 6 sessions, but usually longer. To lead a Forest School programme it is necessary to be a Level 3 certificated and qualified Forest School practitioner, and hold a current and appropriate Outdoor First Aid qualification.

Forest School takes place in a range of situations across the UK. In Scotland and Wales it is part of the broader aims of Outdoor & Woodland Learning Scotland (previously known as the Forest Education Initiative or FEI).
