The main principles of Forest School encourage children and young people to build self esteem and independence through exploring and experiencing the natural world, and through learning new skills. Our forest days are run throughout the year by experienced, Devon-based teachers and include activities such as fire-lighting, shelter-building, outdoor cooking and tool work.
The ethos of Forest School encourages practical, hands-on experience. It also allows teachers to step back and observe the children in order to then encourage and inspire them to achieve and learn. It fosters a love and respect for the natural world.
Other areas of our work with schools include:
- > Curriculum-linked days
- > Training and advice for teaching staff
- > Residential visits to us (designed to your requirements)
- > John Muir Award
