Foresteers Outdoor Preschool

Summary
Foresteers Outdoor Preschool allows children to take part in Forest School experiences that encourage creativity and exploration. All of our experiences are designed to be fun and interesting, and importantly something they would probably never otherwise experience. We are for children aged 2-4 years and offer FEL places.


Description

The Forest School ethos originates from Scandinavia where the young children are taken on walks through the forest following an imaginary character.  Along the way they explore and investigate, take risks and learn together in the great outdoors. 

Activities are varied and linked both to the curriculum and the season in which they take place. Nature is at the heart of all of that we do and children will, over time, learn about the world around them.

Sessions focus on aspects of holistic development. The teacher is less a person of authority and more a facilitator, mentor and experienced companion. Children are allowed to choose the direction they take, discover, discuss and develop without the constraints of a table and chair.  As they learn to respect this freedom they will learn about themselves, learn about others, and learn to be resilient.

We are open 7.30-5.30 Monday to Thursday and are based at Greenhead House Farm in Oughtibridge, S35 0HN.

We have a bell tent with a log burner to keep us warm, plenty of blankets, hammocks and airbeds for if anyone needs a nap. We also have a wooden cabin for windy days. Around the woodland there are different areas such as the mud kitchen, bird watching area, fairy falls and the building area. We also do campfire cooking everyday.
