Our Aims

To allow children to experience nature and the outdoor environment in a safe, secure and hands on way. Sessions will facilitate opportunities for children to explore, play and learn about the forest habitat. Activities are designed by the Forest School Leader but they are equally instigated by the children themselves. The main purpose is to give the children as many opportunities as possible to build their skills of independence, communication, develop their self esteem and allow them to grow when working as a team. On top of these benefits, it will also give them great chances to connect with nature and will teach the children about caring for, managing and understanding the woodland environment.

Children are encouraged to investigate and explore but also to respect all living things.

We respect our forest and all living things within it
We respect each other
We look after ourselves
We do not damage or pick anything growing unless it is agreed by an adult
We do not eat anything from the forest or put our fingers in our mouth
We don’t throw things
We stay within the boundaries
We follow all safety instructions

A Message From

Our Founder

‘Learning is a process you do, not one that is done to you.’ This is a theory that I passionately believe in. My name is Gabby and after 12 years as a primary school teacher, 4 years as a Forest School Practitioner and nearly five years of being a mum I have finally taken the plunge! Wild Beginnings represents my passion and belief that connection sits at the heart of happiness and well being. Through my sessions, I aim to encourage and develop an interest in nature from a young age; having lots of fun along the way. Getting muddy, exploring and moments of awe and wonder await. Wild beginnings start with wild adventures.
