WorkCabin Creative has completed filming and production of a new video for Nature’s Calling Forest School in Norfolk County, Ontario.

By immersing children in natural environments, forest schools foster a deep connection with nature, promoting environmental awareness and appreciation. Furthermore, through hands-on experiences, these schools nurture creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, and physical health. Forest schools also play a pivotal role in developing social skills, teamwork, risk-taking, and independence, preparing children with essential life skills. This article aims to shed light on why forest schools are an amazing approach to outdoor learning, overcoming misconceptions and showcasing their remarkable success stories.

Picture this: children running through the woods, climbing trees, and getting their hands dirty in the mud. No, it’s not chaos, it’s a forest school! Forest schools are a special type of outdoor learning program that takes place in natural environments, such as forests or woodlands. These schools prioritize hands-on experiences, play, and exploration, all while fostering a deep connection with nature.

Forest schools may seem like a trendy new concept, but they actually have roots that date back to the early 19th century in Scandinavia. The philosophy behind forest schools is deeply influenced by the work of Friedrich Fröbel, an educator who believed in the importance of allowing children to learn through self-directed play in natural surroundings.

The core philosophy of forest schools emphasizes the belief that children are best able to develop their skills and knowledge when they are given the freedom to explore and engage with their environment. By providing a nurturing and noncompetitive atmosphere, forest schools encourage holistic development and a love for learning.
