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. 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.

    What is Forest School

    Forest School works through nature to inspire children and offer them hands-on opportunities to learn, achieve, develop confidence and self-awareness, so as to enhance their self-esteem and overall development.

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.
