"Forest School is a fabulous resource for our children. It enables them to explore their environment in a safe and controlled way, giving them the chance to access and experience the outdoors. It helps them to develop their skills in a variety of ways; team building, confidence, fine and gross motor skills, behaviour and communication to name just a few. Our children absolutely love going and are always disappointed when their sessions come to an end. Lauren is brilliant with the children - she allows them to run with their ideas and learn from their mistakes without them feeling any sense of failure. We would have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful resource!"
Carol Deakin Abbey Hill School, Kirkby-in-Ashfield
“Lauren has been instrumental in helping to develop a Forest School programme at our school. Through her own initiative she has also developed a Forest School hub so that other schools have been able to benefit from using our woodland. Lauren has turned our garden into a productive growing space and has developed a creative and experiential programme of activities for our Ecoclub. She is passionate about outdoor learning and the children always really love their time with her. Lauren’s work makes a positive, tangible difference to our children.”

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for all you're doing at Forest school. Thanks to your kind and inclusive vibe my child is feeling really at home there and to my enormous surprise and delight said he'll probably try the elderflower cordial that you've made. I can't tell you how happy I feel about this. This is the first time in his entire life he has volunteered to eat or drink something outside his narrow comfort zone, so this is a magical surprise to us all "

"My child says that Mondays are the best day at school, because he loves your sessions."
