Forest School

Our specifically trained staff bring small groups of children into our woodland area to explore and experience nature and the beautiful, natural outdoors.

Children are given the opportunities to develop skills in den building, tool use and craft activities using natural resources.

The children from our preschool and holiday club take turns to be shown the importance of safety in forest areas, they are able to build small camp fires under one to one supervision whilst learning about the green cross code and the do’s and don’ts about woodland areas.

The children are encouraged to use real tools and shown how to use them safely. This allows the children to take small calculated risks and to judge and evaluate risks for themselves.

Jigsaw’s Forest school has many benefits, it develops children’s skills and enhances confidence in their own abilities promoting self-esteem and thus develops the children’s wellbeing.
