Forest School

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away”


Forest School engages the..​

  • Creative child​

  • Messy child​

  • Adventurous child​

  • Cautious child​

  • Curious child​

  • Willing child​

  • Boisterous child​

All our children fit in somewhere in the open play ethos of Forest School.​  Play, while it cannot change the external realities of children’s lives, can be a vehicle for children to explore and enjoy their differences and similarities and to create, even for a brief time, a more just world where everyone is an equal and valued participant.​   Patricia G. Ramsey​  Contemporary American educational psychologist
