START WITH NATURE
Our (Rather Muddy) Mission
We are a bunch of people who believe with the whole of our hearts in the Forest School Ethos.
When a person can regularly spend time in nature, following their interests, within a community that cherishes them for who they are, that person will develop a deep connection with both nature and others, bringing them peace and wellbeing, and helping to protect our planet.
We strive to bring this opportunity to our community.
NURTURE * WELLBEING * PLAY * CURIOSITY
To make every day we spend in the natural world an opportunity to explore our relationship with the nearby wild, and each other, creating sustainable wellbeing for all.
We are person-centred, embedded in the natural world, which meets the learning, development and well-being needs of us all. We celebrate the participants’ autonomy over the space and foster their innate curiosity and connection, in a community that cherishes them. We strive to ignite a passion for belonging to our long past, as part of nature.
Our values are:
Kindness, generosity and fairness
Learning, in the widest sense of the word
Free play & fun at all times
Strong relationships & a sense of belonging
An unconditional positive regard for all
Integrity in all we do
Flexible & responsive
