Forest Learning

At Lomond School, we believe that every child should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of their learning and personal development.

Evidence suggests that an ethos based on a holistic, child-centred approach can be hugely beneficial to children and Forest Learning encourages confidence, emotional resilience, independence and the language and communication skills crucial to child development.

Core to the Forest Learning experience is learning through purposeful play and responsible risk-taking which always encourages participants to achieve.  Activities such as woodland art and craft, safe use of tools, shelter building, games, and the discovery of flora and fauna all feature strongly and are designed to appeal to a range of learning styles.  In today’s society, so often driven by sedentary, technology-based pursuits, Forest Learning not only increases levels of physical activity but promotes healthy lifestyles and positive mental wellbeing.

The advantages afforded by this most special approach further encourage our children to thrive and flourish as they set out on their journey of exploration and discovery.

The Nursery staff are fantastic and I have seen a real difference in my son’s confidence since starting at Lomond. Forest Learning ticks so many boxes for me as a parent; he is getting fresh air and exercise and learning to respect the environment whilst having a huge amount of fun!
