What is Forest and Nature School?

Free Spirit Forest and Nature School (FNS) provides children with regular and repeated access to a natural space, with a largely emergent, student-led and play-based curriculum. At FNS, children are understood as competent learners that help forge their own program. Children spend the majority of the day immersed in various outdoor settings where learning is unhurried and they are given time and space for independent reflection, collaborative creation and risky play. They enjoy the freedom to explore, build, play and engage with one another. For more information click here.
