Forest School

Forest School is a unique method of Outdoor Education that allows children to develop confidence, independence, self-esteem and awareness and knowledge of the natural environment. This fully supports our Mission Statement:

Bridgewater’s vision is to provide high quality childcare, education and community services for all, ensuring that from birth every child has the best possible start in life.

We strive to build a successful, inclusive, purposeful and happy community within a safe environment.

We are strongly committed to ensure that each child achieves their best.

We encourage each child to take responsibility and become independent learners.”

Forest School is all about supporting children to actively enjoy learning in the outdoor environment. By working in smaller groups children experience all sorts of wonderful things such as using tools, including hammers, saws etc. building fires and doing some outdoor cooking! It is a wonderful experience that children get to share with their friends and they always have the most wonderful time participating in this way of learning.
