Welcome to The Kinsbourne Common Forest School
Forest School was first introduced in the 1950s’ in Scandinavia with people who had close cultural connections with the woodlands. Forest School is an outdoor education delivery model in which children (or adults) visit natural spaces to learn personal, social and technical skills. It has been defined as an inspirational process that offers children, young people and adults regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence through hands-on learning in a woodland environment.
Forest School is both a pedagogy and a physical entity, with the use often being interchanged.
The Nursery is extremely fortunate to have access to such a variety of different outdoor learning opportunities with the beautiful woodland and common land right on its doorstep.
