The following was taken from Class A’s introduction to the Forest School or Forest Kindergarten.
The nature of education is to offer an environment fit for a child to develop their skills based on their needs. It offers them a space where they can exercise their motor, social, cognitive, and creative skills. The outdoor experience offers children a rich and diversified learning area. It lets them exercise physically, making them calmer and more focused when learning new things. It develops children’s sense of community and teamwork. It also boosts their resilience and self-confidence.
Being outdoors promotes their independence as well as their imagination. Children learn to discover nature and the living world through their different senses. This awareness will help establish a connection to this environment that they will want to preserve and protect.
