Nature-based and Forest School education is proving to be a popular choice for families at the moment with many schools and companies offering unique programs outside and in the wild. There are plenty of options for tots, kids, and teens looking to learn...the natural way!

The focus of learning at a Forest School is on inspiring all learners with hands-on experiences in a natural environment with trees - hence the term nature school. The curriculum is learner-centered and aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent, and creative learners.

Topics are cross-curriculum using nature, plants, and animals to teach more abstract topics like math and communications. They place a high value on teamwork and problem-solving.
