Forest School history

Forest School has roots in outdoor play & learning in Scandinavia & the UK.

In the mid 1990s, a cohort of Early Years practitioners & staff from Bridgewater College in Somerset returned from an inspiring visit to Denmark & set about creating their own version of the outdoor play they had witnessed.

Outdoor Hub

Forest School in the UK has evolved and is now very different from the Scandinavian approach it was originally based on.

Children in the UK, on the whole, have limited time and access to the outdoors, whereas Scandinavian children have access all day everyday. There are a growing number of exceptions to this, where nature kindergartens have been set up to allow children to spend their whole day outdoors. These are, unfortunately, exceptions rather than the norm in the UK.
