Forest Schools

Our setting follows a Forest School approach through daily activities in the afternoon, come rain or shine! The Forest School approach is about offering learners regular hands-on experience in a woodland or natural environment with trees. As a result, all children will develop a relationship with the natural world which will help them to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem.



Greatwood Cottage has access to a fantastic outdoor natural setting that will allow children the freedom to experience the Forest School approach in a safe and secure environment under the guidance of trained practitioners.
Children will need appropriate clothing for the daily sessions eg. sunhat and sun tan cream in hot weather and puddle suits and wellington boots on rainy days.
