Forest School at Phil & Jim offers unique, individual experiences for the children through active involvement with nature – regardless of the weather. It gives the children the opportunity to get out into nature to explore, to learn and to have fun. And to do all this with their peers in a safe supervised environment.
At Forest School the focus is on the process of playing. There are no planned activities or teacher-led lessons; rather, children are encouraged to direct their own learning. All this is supported by staff with Forest School training.
We strongly believe that outdoor learning offers an ideal approach for young people to engage with the world around them, and with our Forest School we want to offer children prolonged, regular opportunities to develop this bond with the natural world around them. Our aim is to provide a stimulating context to explore how we can all contribute to a more sustainable present and future.
