A child's first 12 years are the magical years, that will leave a lasting impact on a person's life. Children need free outdoor play in order to set them with the right thinking patterns, attitude, values, beliefs, habits and skills, that will support them to have a long happy and healthy life. In our increasingly urbanised environment, children are spending less time in nature. Play and creativity which are fundamental in a child's formative years are increasingly lacking. We believe that the whole point of education is for children to understand their place in the world and to uncover what they are interested in. Nature Explorers School adopts the Forest School child-led pedagogy, providing children a holistic education experience and allowing your child to develop their interest, instincts, awareness and social skills through nature-based activities.

In today’s fast pace world, children have less time to absorb and digest information. Our weekly forest school sessions are a time for children to find themselves, recollect their thoughts and engage in activities they are keen on. We factor sufficient time for children to settle in, discuss the day's activities before the fun learning and magic begins. There is a sequence in how each session unfolds and children are calm and collected as they know they have ample time.

Fun fact! Bees build their honeycombs using the hexagon shape because they’re the most efficient way to fill a space with the least amount of material.
