“The best classroom and richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky.” McMillan 1919

Forest Child is a Bristol based Community Interest Company running forest schood activites across Bristol, N Somerset and South Glos.

It's all about giving children the opportunity to reconnect with nature, take risks and use our greatest resource, the environment, to learn about the world we live in. By taking part in a Forest School children develop their self confidence, independence, self awareness and social skills.

We'll explore, learn and create during every session using the woods as our inspiration.

Our days include building dens, making charcoal pencils, creating musical instruments and campfire cooking.
