The Forest School

IMAGINE a place where children feel valued and respected, are a part of a community that supports their uniqueness, that is gentle and kind, that feeds their curiosity and love of learning, and that helps develop their self confidence and self reliance.  

 IMAGINE a place that is grounded in a desire to nurture peaceful, creative, intelligent people who truly care about the earth and the people on it. The Forest School is this place.

THE FOREST SCHOOL is an alternative learning centre that   .........believes learning can be a   wondrous adventure, and that people learn by doing. The programs offered are hands-on, and experiential in
  .........nature.  They combine freedom with form and take place both indoors   .........and outdoors.

The primary goals are to:

  • Develop the whole child, mind body and spirit;

  • Nurture an understanding of the interconnectedness of all things, and with that an environmental and social responsibility;

  • Nurture/inspire an excitement for learning and an understanding that it can be a wondrous adventure;

  • Create a community that honours children as individuals, and that values and respects the similarities and differences in all of us;

  • Facilitate learning that is theme-based and largely learner directed;

  • Involve the wider community through service, field trips and apprenticeships.


Although we share similar values, beliefs and guiding principals, we are not affiliated with the
Forest Schools Movement.
