All children, of all ages have direct access to outdoor areas, at all times in all weathers, except when conditions are unsafe. We encourage children to move in and out as they wish extending their activities in the outdoor classroom.
At Westwood Montessori we offer forest school sessions at ‘West Wood” an SSI wood behind the nursery. The children are offered the opportunity to visit forest school during the week, if they so wish. We link our forest school sessions to enhance children’s learning experiences.
Children can experience the awe and wonder that nature offers us in a real woodland environment supported by qualified forest school leaders. With each visit to the forest school children will learn new skills linked to survival of man and caring for the natural environment
Children benefit from exploring in natures playground, reinforcing the knowledge they learn in the classroom. This specialised learning approach enables children to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands on learning experiences. You will soon notice your child’s increasing confidence and willingness to explore new challenges.
