“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul” – John Muir
My happiest childhood memories involved head-to-toe mud, splashing in rivers, losing wellies in swampy spots and the smell of the woods. The desire to share these experiences of nature connection and the benefits of muddy outdoor play with young and old is the driving force behind my Forest School approach.
In a time where so many of us, particularly children, are losing touch with nature and spending more time indoors Forest School is a wonderful tool to help us reconnect, refocus and learn about living in harmony with nature, others and ourselves.
I am a fully trained Forest School leader with over five years of experience delivering sessions for toddlers and children (and the occasional adult!) with Forest Schools across the South West.
I carry my passion for music, crafts, ecology, cooking, tool work and deep nature connection into my sessions.
My experience includes running holiday clubs, after school clubs, school sessions, community days, group day sessions and developing a pilot outdoor parent and toddler programme for the National Marine Aquarium.
I have up to date DBS , first aid certifications (paediatric and outdoor specialities) and public liability insurance.
