As this is a child-led programme, children have to discuss and decide what they want to do. We practice positive role modeling and activities to guide them include, build dens and shelters, create nature craft, light fires, cook outdoors, nature walks to hills and intertidal shores, whittle, woodwork, storytelling, learn about flora, fauna and sustainability projects. Equipment will be provided.
Each term includes excursions and workshops for children to be exposed to other environments and nature based organisations.
To facilitate personal observation and support to each child, we maintain a low teacher to child ratio of 1:6. Each session will be led by a Trained Level 3 Forest School Leader with child first aid qualifications.
Each session is 2.5 hours which provides ample time for children to indulge in their activities.
The Forest School pedagogy works through regular interactions with nature. To blossom, children need to feel settled, where they can learn at their own pace. To secure your child's place, you need to register your child for at least 1 month. Payment will be collected monthly or per term.
$200 per month (4 sessions)
$550 per term (12 sessions)
$160 per month (4 sessions)
$440 per term (12 sessions)
Insurance package purchased for the children has already been factored into the pricing.
We are happy to offer a trial session. Please drop us a note on our Contact Us link if you are coming, with details of your child's name, gender and age. As well as the intended day of the week should you go ahead for the regular session.
Please refer to our sessions page to make a booking.
Please note that this is a drop off session and is not parent accompanied. This is to allow your child freedom to explore and interact with the other children.
Children should come with a long-sleeve top, long pants (preferably not tights as mosquitoes can bite through it), covered shoes (wellies or boots recommended) and a sun hat. We recommend covered attire to prevent against any insect bites and to protect against sunburn. Also as Fathers might recall, once you wear your “Long 4”, you are more willing to be immersed in nature and explore!
What to bring
Back pack with water bottle, raincoat, complete change of clothes and a snack.
