Forest School

What is Forest School?

Forest School gives children a chance to play freely outdoors, in a natural setting on a regular basis, with their classmates.

At Frant Forest School your child will cook outside, light fires, climb trees, build dens, make craft items and experience pond dipping.

Forest School is child led, so children can choose what activities they would like to do.

Forest School participants will be outside in all weather, and in all seasons for hours at a time.
