Forest and Nature School Canada Website
Forest School [FS] is an educational approach that has existed worldwide since the late 1950s, with over ten thousand Forest School programs in the UK alone. In FS, children spend anywhere from a half day to a full day outdoors in various urban and near-urban parks, natural spaces adjacent to or on school grounds, or natural playgrounds and outdoor classrooms. Children attending FS have the opportunity to learn in a natural environment on a regular basis, ranging anywhere from a half to a full day. For instance some programs are offered to students half a day per week, whereas other schools and early years centers have embraced this approach on a more full time basis, resulting in students spending the majority of their days outdoors.
