Outdoor learning continues to play an essential role in early years education, and this new edition of a bestselling book explores how the Forest School approach can be easily and effectively incorporated into early years practice.
Expanding on aspects of Forest School teaching, and drawing on new developments and policy changes within the field, this new edition also includes:
- a new chapter on working with parents
- greater coverage of the birth to two age range
- new case studies to aid learning
- coverage of international approaches to Forest School.
Yet again Sara Knight delivers an inspirational text for all those working in or studying early years education and care.
The book shares the importance of being respectful of the environment, about keeping ourselves safe and changing attitudes about outdoor play to make it a priority in the childhood curriculum… The publication provides information to support educators to explore how they can best use the ideas encapsulated in the “forest school” in their own context.’
