Forest School is a proven pedagogical methodology and one which has been adopted extensively throughout Scandinavia where it has become a key element of Early Years provision.

A great way to deliver the LNF, Wellbeing Act and Successful Futures ….. using the outdoors!!

Forest School provides a unique way of creating a child centred learning environment which fosters independence and self esteem in children through involvement in stimulating outdoor learning activities that enhance physical, emotional, social and cognitive development.

We are FSA South Wales Group members and Coordinators.
