LEARNING THROUGH PLAY IN NATURE
NATURE PLAY TRAINING - THE FOREST SCHOOL WAY E-BOOK
Being outdoors and building a grounded connection to the natural world is now more important than ever. This E-book will introduce you to outdoor education and will give you the skills to apply the Forest School approach in your daily life with your kids.
Nature plays is a forest school based in Cape Town. We believe that the best way to support childhood development is by letting kids explore, play, and learn in nature. By establishing a strong connection to nature, we develop our self-confidence, we build resilience and creative thinking while spending time outdoors.
Through exploration and adventures in nature, playing outdoors promotes the holistic development of children.
Forest schools encourage children to explore their environment and themselves and helps them to develop and grow through positive experiences within nature.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I sensed a feeling of empowerment and deeper appreciation of nature from my kids after the nature club. They loved that they could educate us about the benefits of different plants and how we could utilise them in our home, on ourselves, and especially in our meals.
I like that Pamela allowed the children to direct her. She was also very insightful – she used the opportunity to discuss with the children their likes and dislikes after a little puppy scared my son.
The benefits of nature based learning really are limitless and the enjoyment, endless. When I asked them what they liked the most about nature club, they said: “EVERYTHING!”
