Mastery & Play

The children are experimenting, challenging themselves and one another, discovering truths about forces and absolutes, finding out about natural consequences, feeling, touching, smelling and hearing everything in acute magnification.

Stories
Forest School has helped Damon’s well-being enormously. He has gained so much confidence, has grown his independence and learned lots of amazing skills. The leaders are miracle workers, the children have had such fun despite the challenging times.

Amongst all the other activities that contribute to my children's development, this is the one that is free of all expectations: there is no need to achieve anything, no need to improve on any skill, no compare and despair. This is a couple of hours spent connecting with nature, and an opportunity for children to engage in mostly free and unstructured play.

Forest school for my two Neurodiverse children has been an exceptional experience where they’ve relished in the outdoor learning opportunities. We have struggled for years to find a truly inclusive space and I have never seen them so happy to be part of this outdoor community.
