We are delighted to announce that we have already applied for the first level of our Forest School Association membership to be a recognised Forest School Provider. If we are successful, we will be the only day nursery in Berkshire which has been awarded this prestigious membership to this professional body. Perry has been working extremely hard to pull together all of our evidence. She reports, more importantly, that the children are really enjoying their forest school sessions and becoming more confident and independent in their play. Recently the children have been enjoying:
· spontaneous tree climbing;
· making our own stick men as an extension to the well-known story;
· listening and copying the bird’s chorus and making a child-sized birds nest;
· making up our own stories and making fairy and elf houses as the dragon with a cold sneezed the last village down to name but a few.
This first level membership is an Introduction to Forest Schools, and we plan to apply for full membership later in the Autumn.
