Summerhill Country Park and Outdoor Nature Reserve

Summerhill Forest School

Suitable for Nursery, Reception & Primary School aged children.

The Forest School concept was developed in Scandinavia for preschool children.

It was found that children who attended Forest School arrived at ‘primary’ school with strong social and communication skills, had the ability to work in groups and generally had high self-esteem and confidence in their own abilities.

Forest school will run all year round using the 100 acre site of Summerhill.

Sessions can cover:-

  • Literacy and Numeracy, ‘Shapes, Spaces and Measures’,
  • 'Plants and Animals’, Exploring Media and Materials,
  • Imagination and Creativity.

As well as providing standard sessions we can also tailor sessions to your needs.

All Staff are Forest School practitioners or assistants.
