What is a forest school?

We leave your little ones outside all day long, rain, snow, sun, wind.* They will play* with knives and climb trees. They WILL come home muddy, they will make a mess in your car - your house will be a Persil advert!

* We follow guidance from the Met Office, there may be times of the year in extreme conditions and lightning where we will be back at base. We use knives and other implements as tools, this is risk assessed and highly supervised. 


Please watch this documentary to understand more about forest schools.
