Forest school is an outdoor nature-based learning experience that focuses on the holistic development of the child. It’s so much more than children just ‘mucking about’ in the mud!
Since the 1950’s , across Scandinavia and Europe, children have been partaking in outside, natural learning. The philosophies of these ‘Nature Nurseries’ is child-led learning and as a result, children have shown higher self-esteem, more confidence and become astute independent learners.
Forest school is this adopted concept of outside learning that enriches our children’s education in so many ways and is a great support of mental health.
Our aim at St George's Forest School is to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners.
This is our forest school motto.
The beauty of forest school is that children realise that a 'can't' is really a 'cant do yet' & that when you try, in the end, you can.
By not sending the crowds away Jesus demonstrated his CARE for all. Matthew 14:16
We welcome all into our school and care for them in a holistic and nurturing way.
