This topic has been developed with Mel McCree, a Senior Lecturer within Early Childhood Studies and Sarah Lawfull, who runs her own consultancy, Where the Fruit is, which has delivered training on government-funded projects with the National Forest. Together, they explore the Forest School Approach including the principles of learning, risk-taking and how it can support health and wellbeing.
With practical suggestions on how to apply Forest School principles to their own settings, practitioners will have a greater understanding of risk outdoors, as well as the benefits of the Forest School Approach for children.
