Little Trees Forest School

Little Trees Forest School has been established by Kim Free, a local Forest School Practitioner with a passion for outdoor learning. Since gaining accreditation she has seen the benefits of children interacting with nature through play and this new venture based at Glevering aims to offer adults and children the chance to book forest school sessions and explore the wonders within the woodlands and fields on the farm.

The Ethos

Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.

Forest School has a developmental ethos shared by thousands of trained practitioners around the world, who are constantly developing their learning styles and skills to support new and imaginative learners. Its roots reach back to the open-air culture, friluftsliv, or free air life, seen as a way of life in Scandinavia where Forest School began. It arrived in the UK in 1993 and has grown from strength to strength since then.
