Fun in the Forest - Forest School
Fun in the Forest emerged from the local woodland in Muswell Hill and is founded by Ivana Grant, an experienced primary school teacher and trained Forest School leader. We run Forest School sessions in Coldfall Wood N10 during term time and school holidays and our sessions are run by our experienced primary school teachers and Forest School Level 3 practitioners, trained in paediatric outdoor first aid. All of our staff are DBS (CRB) checked.
Forest School is a holistic child-centred approach to children's learning. It offers children of all ages the opportunity to develop physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually, all at their own pace. It stimulates their development through hands-on learning experiences where the role of an adult is to facilitate the learning journey of each child. It is an alternative to an academic, test-based education system. It teaches children how to work together, appreciate the cycles of nature and rediscover the lost skill of playing purely with resources that nature has provided.
“We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being.” Maria Montessori
