At Painted Oak Nature School, the forest is our classroom; stumps are our chairs, plants are our curriculum, birds and minibeasts are our classmates. By moving through the landscape in all types of weather, the children form deep connections to the plants and animals that we share the land with. They build confidence and knowledge to better understand their place in the world and the impact they have on it. This class will share the ethos behind forest school, the how-to’s of teaching children about native plants and wild edibles, and the holistic benefits that such explorations provide.
