Additional information

Forest school is an inspirational and fun experience. It is a long term programme that offers learning and development through child-led play, exploration and risk-taking. Its hands-on learning in a natural setting and helps build self-confidence, self-esteem, nature connection and well-being. Forest school involves risky activities such as the use of fire, tools, tree climbing and mud play. 
At Muddy Feet nature connection runs through everything we do, in fact its all based on a growing body of research that we use in our programme development.
We use natural items found in the woods for the activities, we believe that Forest School should be a wild experience and not just bringing the indoors outdoors. 
The Forest School Association has produced this video on Forest School, if you want to find out more
