Montrose Forest School Ethos

 

Forest School is much more than children just playing outside. It is an opportunity for them to learn and develop many new skills in a less structured and more natural environment which suits many individual learning styles. Children become self motivated and have a desire to extend and move their learning forward. They develop autonomy and are able to review and reflect on previous play and learning experiences. They learn through the process of doing rather than the end product which builds confidence and self esteem.

These skills can be transferred into many aspects of life and help children to become well rounded individuals who are able to function in today’s society.
