Course Content: Are you interested in learning the skills to be able to take your class outside and into a woodland setting more often? Would you like children to be able to spend more time outdoors, in nature, which has huge benefits for their health & well-being as well as their personal, cognitive and creative development? Forest School, which has been growing in Ireland since 2013 is based on recurring time in nature, it is child-led and designed to develop the children’s relationship to themselves, each other, learning and nature in a safe and holistic way.
