WHAT WE DO

Forest School SNPT has been providing inspiring approaches to outdoor learning and play since 2001. We train others in how to use these approaches through a wide range of courses and deliver projects to children and young people of all abilities.

WHY WE DO IT

We want all children and young people to have the chance to be able to look back on their childhood with magical memories of playing in the woods or outdoors, getting muddy, discovering bugs and eating food cooked on the fire they made.

BUILDING CONFIDENCE AND WELL-BEING

Children and young people should know what it feels like to succeed at something and have someone else notice and care. We want them to know more about themselves, how they learn, communicate and socialise and of course to be happy and healthy.

RAISING AWARENESS

We’d like to encourage everyone to respect and actively care for their local natural environment so that they will appreciate the green spaces on their doorsteps and let future generations have those same experiences.

Activities

Project Delivery - On-going sessions for children young people and their families in various locations across the  counties of Swansea/Neath Port Talbot.
