FOREST SCHOOL CLUB

Forest School Learning and Outdoor Play Sessions…..
 
In East Renfrewshire we have lots of green spaces, that are very underused. At Off Grid Kids Clarkston we want to take advantage of our beautiful environment and have lots of rewarding fun.
 
Even when the sun is not shinning, our forest School clubs believe you can have amazing adventures outside.
 
The benefits of outside free play:
  • Improved focus & concentration
  • Increased confidence
  • Improve co-operation
  • Increase resilience 
  • Improve ability to risk assess
  • Create healthier & more active children
  • Increase in respect of the environment
Whilst we have themes for each block, we are child led, giving the participants choice in what we do. 
Our wide range of activities include den building, tree climbing, crafting, making fires, cooking……. the list really is as large as their imagination!

Over the 6 week block, they will start to develop new skills, learning by stealth, and from their peers as those with skills are encouraged to share them with the others in the group, which improves confidence and belief in their abilities.

Our clubs are open to all school age children from 5 to 12 years.

If these times don’t suit, then remember you can bring your child directly to us on any day of the week (subject to space) to join in the fun!

During your childs time with us they will be encouraged to experience den building, cooking, designing and making their own crafts, developing fantastic life skills or just playing with their friends – all in a woodland environment. With us children learn to risk assess their own activities, gain confidence in their own abilities, learn new skills and are encouraged to pass on their learning to the other children in the group.

All this takes place in a supportive environment led by experienced & qualified staff with a ratio of 1:6.  We follow the Forest School ethos of putting the child at the centre of their own learning, encouraging them to develop themselves at a rate appropriate for them.

Children should arrive ready to start playing and dressed for the weather conditions on that day.
