Kinda is celebrating its success at becoming a Recognised Forest School Provider by offering children an opportunity to experience ‘good practice’ Forest School.
Forest School is a specialised learning approach based in a woodland or natural environment with trees. It offers all participants regular opportunities to develop self-confidence and esteem through hands-on learning experiences. Its roots reach back to early years pioneers in outdoor learning in Scandinavia.
In October 2017, the Forest School Association (FSA) – the UK’s professional body and voice for all things Forest School – launched a new scheme to recognise Forest School Providers who demonstrated that they are following good Forest School practice – the FSA Recognised Forest School Provider scheme. Successful applicants such as Kinda Forest School are added to a publicly accessible map on the FSA’s website http://www.forestschoolassociation.org/find-a-forest-school-provider/
