Forest and Nature School

In the spring of 2022 Inspired by Wonder launched our Forest and Nature School Program. Children have the opportunity participate in a seasonal 6 -10 week session to spend time learning in and learning from the outdoors. With regular and repeated access to the same natural space children make connections with and learn to respect nature. Appropriate risky play such as great heights (climbing trees), dangerous elements (fire, bodies of water) and dangerous tools (hammers, drills) are among the benefits of Forest School which encourages self-confidence, resilience, understanding of limits and safety measures and self- regulation. Child led play-based curriculum allows the children to explore, build, play and interact freely with each other which builds a child’s confidence and social skills.
