Activities

This is a child-led programme, children have to discuss and decide what they want to do. Some activities to guide them include, building dens, nature craft, starting fire, outdoor cooking, nature walks to hills and intertidal shores, whittling, story stones, learning about flora, fauna. All equipment will be provided.

Staff

To facilitate personal observation and support to each child, we maintain a low teacher to child ratio of 1:5. Each session will be led by a certified Level 3 Forest School Leader with child first aid qualifications.

 

Duration

Each session is 2.5 hours which provides ample time for children to indulge in their interest and 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.

Drop off

Please note that this is a drop off session and is not parent accompanied. This is to allow your child freedom to explore their interest and interact with the other children.

Attire

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 as there are opportunities for water play) and a hat or cap. We recommend a 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.
