WOODLANDS EDGE FOREST SCHOOLS
Most of us know a stroll outside on a sunny day is a great up lifting experience. Now it may also be just what the doctor ordered. The benefits of nature for both body and soul are finding their way to the prescription pad as more health care providers are prescribing a dose of nature to their patients. For many vulnerable groups needing extra support and even those effected by trauma, being immersed in a ‘wild’ setting and connecting with nature can provide an alternative treatment and provide many with a place of solace. All Forest School sessions are run by our qualified Forest School level 3 practitioner and all instructors are first aid qualified and hold a current DBS.
Forest School lends itself perfectly to children and adults with additional learning difficulties. By the very nature of the natural setting participants generally feel calmer and less inhibited to learn. Every session takes into account individual and group needs, learning ability, styles of learning and stages of development. A suitable programme can be discussed and formulated with teachers/carers and adapted to specific needs.
Please feel free to contact us. We will be happy to look at any specific Forest School programme. For more information or to receive a copy of our Forest School handbook go to our contact page.
