Our Forest Kindy 

Forest Kindy encourages children to take supported risks within the natural environment. It develops a sense of wonder and discovery in the outdoors, encouraging self-esteem, independence, confidence and creativity.

What children learn from our forest Forest Kindy:

  • Children becoming familiar with the local environment and their place in it
  • Exploring nature close up, asking questions and investigating to find the answers
  • Understanding how to keep themselves safe, whether it is climbing a tree or crossing the road, children are given strategies and tools that they can use to make sure that they keep themselves and others safe
  • Taking responsible risks; in our society children’s ability to take responsible risks is very limited, by giving them the tools and strategies for keeping safe children can begin to understand the implications of the risks that they take
