"The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky" Margaret McMillan
The Forest Kindergarten provides children with the freedom, space and a beautiful natural environment in which to be children, to run, swing, build dens, climb, be creative, acquire a natural curiosity and hands-on understanding of the natural world, to tell stories, play and explore, whilst experiencing all that nature has to offer. Every day we discover and learn something new through the ever changing seasons. Children develop strong physical, social and language skills, and above all self-esteem and respect for the great outdoors.
