The philosophy of Forest Schools is to encourage and inspire young children by engaging them in experiences which are motivating and achievable in an outdoor woodland environment.
The staff of Town and Country Kiddies have taken part in Forest Schools training in association with Lincolnshire Forest Schools and this involved learning about:
How to develop a challenging programme of activities like:
-Building Fairy Villages
-Effective risk assessment near water and outdoors
-How to light a fire safely
-How to cook outdoors
-How to use outdoor tools safely
-Identifying trees and plants
-Identifying animals tracks
-What you can do with Mud, Stick and String, and lots more...
Each year all sites take part in Forest Schools Curriculum Programmes so as many children as possible can benefit from the awe and wonder of the outdoor learning environment.
