About Us

If your memories of childhood are of always being outdoors, having adventures at the bottom of the garden, disappearing off with mates for the whole afternoon into the nearby woods and fields and being told to come home for tea when it was starting to get dark, then you were probably born before the techno age, before we were glued to our phones, tablets and making excuses about what the weather was doing to go out and play.

We live in a culture now where we are so concerned about the safety of our kids outside of our homes that sadly they are missing out on the freedom, adventure and risk taking that we were so unknowingly lucky enough to experience.


Forest school is a long-term programme delivered ideally in a woodland setting or natural space. It provides regular sessions/opportunities for emotional development with a holistic approach that builds on child -led achievable experiences and sense of community. Forest School also facilitates their interaction of the natural world in a positive and magical way where children can learn to manage their own emotions in response to challenges and perceived risks . Sessions are delivered by a qualified Forest School practitioner and include environmental impact assessments and risk benefit analysis’.
