Forest School: Important Life Lessons That Nature Taught My Child

My fondest memories as a child happened outdoors. I remember my parents bringing me and my siblings to beach trips, nature walks, and city tours. We experienced traveling to different countries as a family and got to explore how cold snow is and how hot desert heat is. But apart from those memories being my fondest, I think it’s also during those trips when I learned most about life. Now that I’m already a mom, I try my best to give my daughter the same opportunity to explore and to learn outside the four walls of our home.

Thanks to Instagram, I stumbled upon Forest school. I was immediately drawn to the program when I read that it’s play-based and learner-led. It encourages parents to take a step back so that the kids can explore nature on their own and discover how capable they really are. This, for me, sealed the deal.
