Since June 2013 Childsplay children aged 3 and 4 years have had the opportunity to be involved in Forest School. This activity is led by key staff who are Forest school leaders (Level 3). This year we are writing a Forest School Blog to share our adventures in the woods, and to help families to talk about and build upon the experiences at home.
This year we're involved in a research project that brings older adults and young children together in the unique Forest School learning environment. The project studies the importance and positive life impacts of of young children engaging with older adults, where the adults are grandparents or older family members who are keen to work outdoors in the woodland alongside the staff and children.
The Forest School project commenced on 8th September, and we're posting weekly updates to the blog to share our activities and the fun we are having learning together. We welcome your feedback on our events too!
