About Forest Schools: Forest schools — or nature-based preschools as they are sometimes called — are a type of early childhood education that takes place in forests or woodlands. The curriculum is fluid, focusing on learner-led outdoor play that encourages curiosity and exploration. Forest schools differ from traditional outdoor education in that learning isn’t focused on scientific inquiry but instead led by the child’s own curiosity and interests in an unstructured way.
