Over the past 20 years, Forest School has continued to encourage and inspire individuals of all ages to take an innovative approach to outdoor play and learning. Linking theory with practice and exploring current research, this book considers the implementation of forest school opportunities for children and young people from 0-18 years.

In depth case studies from across the United Kingdom and Ireland explore the variety of nature provision including:
  • Rural and urban day nurseries for very young children
  • State and independent provision for Early Years and Primary Schools
  • Secondary school intervention strategies for students with special education needs and disabilities
  • Supporting families with Forest School
Whether you're training to become a teacher, or already working in the outdoor classroom, this book demonstrates how Forest School approaches are enriching children and young people's learning and deepening their connections with the natural world with spectacular results.
