Hopscotch launched Forest School sessions in January 2017 at a local woodland area. The sessions are led by a fully qualified Forest School Leader and are held on Tuesday mornings, during term times, from 9,15 - 12.00.
Children need to be 3 years old. Although preferance is given to the children attending Hopscotch Montessori Nursery, there are some spaces for other children.
The cost is £18 per session with a minimum sign up of 6 sessions.
The Forest School and Montessori ethos' work very well together. Both enable the children freedom to explore and to choose their own learning path. Teaching and learning is a mutual process and is built on respect for one another.
Forest School is about building relationships - with one another, with nature and the group. Children are provided with opportunities to take safe risks and learn how to manage their own risks. Often, much of what happens in Forest School cannot be put into words. It’s more of a feeling that grows and lays roots. It’s about the little things, that some may say are ‘unimportant’. It’s about the big things that really matter to children, no matter how small. It’s about noise and it’s about silence. Sometimes the most important messages are conveyed without saying a word. It’s about recognising when to step in and when to take a step back and when to jump in the biggest puddle! It’s about life, it’s about laughter, it’s about curiosity and it’s about living.
