Wellbeing

There is a growing emphasis placed on mental wellbeing of children. At far younger ages children are expressing stress and anxiety traits. Yet, at the same time there is a wealth of evidence that encourages instead of prescribing medications to increase opportunities to spend time outside in green spaces such as woodland, fields or forests to reduce rates of mental illnesses in children.

Forest school can increase numerous skills for children such as confidence, self-esteem, motivation, concentration, problem solving ability, and stress relief. Not only that, it can also provide children with the experiences to learn, apply and transfer skills into everyday life for example communication during fire safety, problem solving during den building, team work during bug hunts, independence during free play, and respect for peers, wildlife and the environment in every session.
