This is what Forest and Nature School in Canada says about the Forest School Approach, “Forest and Nature School programs adhere to the following: regular and repeated access to the same natural space, as well as emergent, experiential, inquiry-based, play-based, and place-based learning (MacEachren, 2013). The defining feature of this type of nature-based education program is that children are provided with opportunities to build an on-going relationship with the land, to a dedicated educator, to one another, and to themselves through this educational approach.”
Forest and Nature School in Canada:
A Head, Heart and Hands Approach to Outdoor Learning
At Room to Roam we follow this place-based approach in that we revisit the same parks throughout the year so that the children can connect with the space and take note of the changes through the seasons. We also adhere to a play-based, inquiry-led, emergent experience.
