Our Deputy Manager, Becca has developing our woodland into a fully accredited forest school. Becca is already a level 5 early years practitioner but is almost complete on her level 3 qualification for forest school too. All her sessions take place in our very own woodland at the back of the setting. Becca has been working closely with the woodland trust to develop the space that borders with their nature reserve. They have already been having fires, making hot chocolate using tools and having so much fun with ropes and swings!
We are allowing the free early education funding to be used towards forest school which is a real opportunity for kids in Dover! The same ethos we use in the lambs, lions and lions leaders classrooms is mirrored throughout forest school, but we are just in the great outdoors!! Fantastic!!
