Forest School

Welcome to The Valley Forest School.

Originally a Scandinavian idea, Forest School operates on the principle that children of all ages can benefit from hands-on learning in a woodland environment. This child-led approach to learning encourages the development of:

  • Independence;
  • Responsibility;
  • Resilience;
  • Self confidence;
  • Perseverance,
  • Communication & social skills.

Children can choose what they would like to do and who they would like to do it with, giving them control of their experiences.
