Forest Schools

A natural environment for co-operation and problem solving

At our nursery in Lincoln we are now delivering Forest Schools every week.  The children make use of our local wood to experience outdoor learning.

Forest Schools is an innovative educational approach to outdoor play and learning.  The philosophy of Forest Schools is to encourage and inspire children through positive outdoor experiences.

By participating in engaging, motivating and achievable tasks and activities in a woodland environment our children have shown us how they all benefit from this unique experience.

Forest schools has demonstrated success with children of all ages who visit the same local woodlands on a regular basis and through play, who have the opportunity to learn about the natural environment, how to handle risks and most importantly to use their own initiative to solve problems and co-operate with others.  Children use tools, play, learn boundaries of behaviour, both physical and social, establish and grow in confidence, self-esteem and become self-motivated.

Our Forest Schools experiences have helped to develop:


  • Self-awareness

  • Self-regulation

  • Motivation

  • Independence

  • A positive mental attitude, self-esteem and confidence
