About

Forest School Term Time: 15th August to 16th October (9 weeks). Public holiday closures: Nil. Our weekday morning drop-off programme is for pre-school aged children 3yrs-6yrs old (3.5-6yrs for the Singapore Botanic Gardens) and is an authentic Forest School programme true to the internationally recognised ethos. Children are free to roam, explore, challenge and engage with one another and in this way, our programme has a strong influence on the development of emotional intelligence, self-esteem, and social skills. Our session Leaders carefully craft experiences based on the children's interests. Experiences have multiple links to holistic development. Our sessions are inspired by the natural world and its cycles, cultural celebrations and stories. This helps children to develop a strong sense of their place in the world. We work to encourage the next generation of caretakers for our planet to emerge through the personal experience of the wonder of nature. ​ Children attending this programme will be: - Ready to spend time away from their primary caregivers. - Able to respect the boundaries that are necessary to ensure safety in the outdoors. - Physically able to walk and play outdoors for the duration of the session in the tropical environment. - At least three and a half years old and have attended a trial to assess readiness for the programme. - Toilet trained.
