Kindling Forest School was established in 2014 to offer Scandinavian style outdoor learning for preschool children aged from 3 to 5. We offer genuine Forest School; outdoor sessions in all seasons and all weathers, cooking lunch on the camp fire and snuggling into our tipi when it’s really cold.
If your child loves the outdoors and you want their early years to be ones of freedom out in nature, fellowship and well-being within a small group and quality teaching as well, then Kindling is for you. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org / 07522 076489 to register or find out more.
Our sessions start with a walk from the local park to our camp in secluded woods, with lots of discovery and exploration along the way. In the woods there’s time to play, climb, enjoy the mud kitchen or read books while lunch is cooked over the camp fire. After lunch we have a story and songs together, and reflect on what the children have achieved and learnt that day.
Our staff are all Forest School Leaders and experienced practitioners. We believe children benefit a great deal from learning and playing in the freedom of the outdoors.
Our small groups and high adult to child ratio allow for lots of personal support and managed risk taking, which builds good self esteem. Children develop resilience and confidence from being out and about in all weathers and all seasons, and learn an enormous amount about the world around them.
