At Earth Play Forest School we provide opportunities for children to reconnect to nature.
Learning through exploration, experiment, enquiry and having a go is fundamental to the learner’s experience
Learning how nature works and feels, it’s: shapes, colours, textures, season changes and needs.
Earth play happens at Naturewise Teifi Community Forest Garden.
A unique, local resource where the structure of woodland with its multiple layers (the canopy, shrub, herb and soil layers) is replicated, to use the land economically to provide food. It creates a biodiverse rich environment for insects, bees, birds and flora. There are many different kinds of fruit, herbs & nuts to harvest for all.
We instruct children about how to enjoy nature safely with the least opportunity to come to harm, but with the freedom to explore and expand into an activity. We assess both the risks alongside the benefits. This enables the children to develop their skills and gain confidence in themselves and the world around them. The child has companionship in discovery and hopefully experiences being a part of something enriching as they negotiate the environment, building a fire and making a spark.
