Forest School and Ballet are the highlights of this little ones week. She thoroughly enjoys embarking on adventures in the woods with her peers. She also has so much fun climbing in the tree house. Isabella-Grace has always been a fan of nature, she loves the great outdoors! 💜

The sun bringing out the detail of a persimmon leaf. I’d never really noticed that there was a huge persimmon tree (kaki in Japanese) in the middle of the neighborhood park until my daughter started playing with the fallen fruit. It doesn’t last long as I’m sure the local birds must eat it pretty fast. I’m a fan of kaki but I always find it tricky to get it at the perfect ripeness to taste its best. Kaki (柿), is native to East Asia, including Japan I think but I also read it was introduced from China. It is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world , being cultivated in China for over 2000 years. If you are in Tokyo in Autumn then try one. They have big black seeds in them but I was taught how to cut them (along the lines on the base) to avoid the seeds. Although these days many are grown seedless to save you the hassle. You can eat the skin too. #Naturekids #naturefamily #tokyowithkids #tokyolife #tokyonature #outdoorkids #outdoorfamily #outdoormum #outdoormom #curiouslittlewilds #東京ライフ #スローライフ #東京自然 #wildandfree #natureplay #wildlife #tokyofamily #naturelovers #letthegrassgrow #forestschool #outdoorlearning #persimmon #柿の木 #柿 #autumn #autumnfruits

We don’t just teach children about nature. We foster long-term mentoring relationships, help them build resilience, support their growth and support them to face their fears in a safe way. Nature is just the best way that we’ve found to do that ❄️ • • • • #resilience #forestschool #natureschool #outdoorschool #wildschool #wildschooling #mentorship #natureeducation #natureconnection #BeMoreNeedLess #outdooreducation #outdoored

Great schools have many distinguishing features in common but only a few are dynamic and truly unique. #honglokyueninternationalschool is one of those schools in Hong Kong! It was 35 years ago when a group of parents decided to open the school so their children could learn Chinese. And today... it still offers a comprehensive Chinese program and so much more. It is the first accredited Forest School Development Centre outside the UK. It is also attracting global attention for its cutting edge approaches to learning. #innovativelearning #ibschools #forestschool #chineselearning #outdooreducation

I’ve been doing lots of research for a curriculum I can utilise at home with Wilfred for when he turns 2! 😍I know that he’ll be able to access the Early Years Development matters framework and also his Montessori Nursery will have adapted it so that it’s inline with their practices.😃However, I was looking for something that we could do as a family that focuses on ‘wonder & discovery’... and this one does just that! ✨ I follow the evidence-based practice that a slow and unforced introduction into language and literature is best, and that small children should be spending most of their days outdoors in nature. 🌿 Also, this curriculum is not formal or rigid and each area of learning can be done at any time for any length of time. I just love it’s flexibility!! 🙌🏻 Each week has a Nature study, Composer study, Maths/Science, Arts, Kindness & Connectivity and The Kitchen Classroom. There’s also a suggestion for a weekly book and a themed sensory experience you can set up in the home. 🥰 Can you tell I am itching to start?! I’m obviously going to wait until our routine is set in place with baby girl and incorporate this into our natural weekly rhythm around April/May next year. ❤️❤️❤️ • • • • • • • • • • • • • #yorkshire #yorkshiremum #channelmumvillage #naturalresources #snaphappybritmums #montessori #xtagshine #freeplay #myfamily #raisingthefuture #amagicalchildhood #freedomwithinlimits #montessoriathome #familytradition #lifewithlittles #gentleparenting #independentchild #montessoritoddler #naturalmaterials #magicofchildhood #blossomandroot #blossomandrootearlyyears #homeschool #homeschooling #unschooling #naturecurriculum #naturestudy #forest #forestschool

Beautiful morning at Pigshill yesterday 😊 we made scones, explored the woods, read a story about a bear preparing his home for the winter and made our own Honeybuns a home for the winter. Thank you to all who came! Parent and Toddler sessions run every Monday at Pigshill Wood. On Fridays 15th & 22nd November we have sessions at Poole Farm too!

Would you rather #grill your #campfire #bannock #bread on a #doughstick or make use of a #coldsteel #survivalshovel? Or would you just bring sandwiches? 🤣 There's loads of ways to make bannock, which some people call #damper or #campbread. It's just a simple unyeasted bread. Fry it, bake it under the ashes and embers, grill it on a #carved #breadboard. When you're hungry it all tastes good. It's always good laugh too, as someone's always ends up flopping into the fire! #bushcraft #survival #survivalskills #woodcraft #camping #wildcamping #leadertraining #adventure #forestschool

Cold weather becomes that cozy time where hot chocolate, tea and warm fires are not only fun, but essential for a successful day outside. . Our Monday Wild Ones program runs throughout some of the coldest parts of the year. With proper gear and clothing, children have the opportunity to get outside in all weather. As a result, they are able to reap the benefits of being in nature, moving their bodies, and engaging in full-body play experiences. . #timbernookbtv #timbernook #wonderroots #wonderrootsllc #getoutside #letthemmove #nature #winterplay #nosuchthingasbadweather #snow #kidsinnature #vermontwinter #natureplay #forestschool #1000HoursOutsideChallenge

The cold weather is here! Time to wrap up warm so we can all still enjoy our morning nature walks. There is no better way to learn about the changing seasons than to be out in them! My favourite winter essential is a pair of wooly trousers from @bumpkin_tumblepants made from recycled wooly jumpers!! Just pop on over your normal trousers to keep cosy and warm. If only @bumpkin_tumblepants made adult sizes! 😁🍁🍂 #nobadweather #nobadweatherjustbadclothes #winterwalks #autumnactivities #preschool #outdoorchildhood #outdoorchildcare #earlyyears #daycare #naturekids #playoutside #natureplayground #childminder #childminding #forestschool

We enjoyed the winter sunshine at Forest School Foragers today and made the most of our spooky pumpkins before they completely decompose 🎃 We started with a pumpkin hunt then made delicious pumpkin muffins from the fab @sneakyvegblog that went down like a storm! Plus lots of playing in the mud kitchen ❤️ #forestschool #outdooreducation #earlyyears #outdoorlearning #wintersun #pumpkin #natureplay #naturegarden #mudkitchen #kidscooking #familycooking #eatmoreveggies #family #stockwell #lambeth

Littles have this need to line things up: cars, trains, rocks. It's one of those behavioral schema we always talk about, and it's a great way for kids to explore order and sorting. Eventually they begin to sort by color and size. It's a great precursore to so much learning down the road!⠀ ⠀ #playmatters #playislearning #playbasedlearning #learningthroughplay #letthembelittle #letkidsbekids #raisingwild #raiseawildchild #outdoorlearning #outdoorclassroom #forestschool #childhoodunplugged #freerangechildren #freerangelittles #freerangekids #growingupoutdoors #growingupoutside

Pumpkins in the wood 🎃 I revisited Lila’s forest school last week to capture a few autumnal images to add to the collection. I photographed our mud tots group for over 2 years. It’s lovely looking back and seeing the children growing up and the seasons changing. I’ll be posting more from this project soon but right now... pumpkins, campfire, woodsmoke, wellies & autumn treasures 🍁🍂🍄 . . . . #pumpkins #autumn #woods #forestschool #mudtots #dartingtonestate #outdooreducation #pumpkinday #totnes #dartington #fireside #campfire #woodsmoke #wellies #toddlerwellies #community #documentaryphotography #naturelovers #eco #woodlands

Here's a nature school in Kotka, Finland called Luontokoulu Haili. Nature schools aim to create awareness in children towards nature and to support responsible ways of living. "Today with the students of Haukkavuori we put up a tarp, used a kelly kettle and talked a bit about every man's rights. Even though it wasn't so cold, the warm juice sold like hot cakes" ☺️ 🌿🌲 #learninginnature Repost @luontokouluhaili : Tänään Haukkavuoren oppilaiden kanssa pressulaavunrakennusta, risukeittimiä ja vähän siinä sivussa myös jokamiehenoikeuksia. Lämmin mehu teki kauppansa vaikka ei kovin kylmä keli ollutkaan.  #retkellä #luontokoulu #merikaupunkikotka #lykeverkosto #jokamiehenoikeudet #metsäretki
