What is Forest School?
Forest School is an opportunity for children to experience and explore their environment. Children are encouraged to develop their independence, improve their decision-making skills, and raise their self-esteem through small achievable tasks and new learning opportunities.
Forest School at Leesons takes place in a designated area of the School grounds.
