our forest school


​Our Forest School site is an area of woodland which is used as an outdoor classroom where children can explore, investigate, discover and share in the wonder of God's creation.

Forest School is a relatively new concept in Surrey but has been identified as an approach which is particularly beneficial in promoting positive behaviour, self-esteem and emotional intelligence. It enables children to take risks within the boundaries of a safe environment and encourages positive relationships and teamwork as children learn to cooperate with their peers and become more aware of others' needs. Through its holistic approach which nutures children's spiritual, physical, intellectual, social, emotional and language development, Forest School fosters resilient, confident, independent and creative learners.

Children love the adventure of Forest School and here at Sapphires Nursery School it is becoming one of our highlights of the week!
