Vision & Mission
"Down the Woods' Forest School" Vision Statement is to give every child the chance to experience this wonderful learning opportunity.
Using the Forest School ethos will help the children improve their understanding of nature conservation and its impact on the local area. Forest School has been particular successful with children by:
• Visiting the same local woodlands children learn about their surrounding natural environment.
• Learning how to handle risks during challenging activities.
• Learning to use their own initiative to solve problems and co-operate in a different environment with others.
"Down the Woods" runs a Forest School initiative for children in Hertfordshire.
