A HUGE thank you to you and your team. Cece had the most wonderful Monday and Wednesday with you this week.  It is the first time she has done this having just started at Lambrook this term.  I heard from many mothers that your Forest School was a camp “to do” and I can now see why. Cece truly loved it and will, without question, be back for more with you.                                   Suzanne Watson (22-10-21)

“Rowan has not spoken so highly of a teacher/adult since he went to preschool and had a wonderful relationship with his Key Worker. He never spoke of any of the teachers or assistants in the way he speaks of you.”

“it is a rare thing to find such a high quality provision so local for home educators”
“Aana has been enjoying the sessions at Blacknest so much and has been telling me so much knowledge that she has learned so firstly I just wanted to say thankyou!”

“Blacknest to us – Freedom to learn in an environment that doesn’t put up walls, that allows and accepts children of all abilities and personalities to thrive and flourish. To learn without fear of reprimand, or rights and wrongs while respecting rules. And self-motivated kindness, to build friends naturally, to foster teamwork and allow controlled risk-taking, and offer up natural physical challenges without fear of failure. Every child needs a forest school day in their life. A forest school day is a day to remember forever, one where your mind body and soul run free. “ Lou

Both my two children love getting stuck into forest school. They come home full of beans and eager to tell me all about their day of fun and learning they have had. From nest building to building dens and climbing trees. I’ve noticed they have carried on with their Forest school play once they have returned home. They jump up and get ready on the mornings they know they are going to forest school. We love it!! Thank you Anne and the team 💖

“I’d like to thank you and your lovely team of Forest school leaders for the opportunities you have given Tabitha. During the dark days of June especially, Tabitha would be be up dressed before any of us in her excitement to come to Forest School.Over the last 3 months she’s been delighted to build dens, light fire, whittle sticks and eat marshmallows! I think we are now prepared for a zombie apocalypse with the amour of whittled spears we have!She’s also confidently naming trees that we pass and is more interested and aware of the environment. Having Forest school to go to, has given Tabitha the summer all children should remember, not one inside and on a computer whilst their parents work. ” Julia

Robyn has a fantastic day today! She was so happy and chatted all the way home about everything she had been up to. Thanks so much to all your staff for giving her such a great experience. Nicola
