The First Day

Prepare your child for forest school by letting him/her know that school is fun as he/she will be with other children and do enjoyable things together. Tell him/her that the teachers and other adults are there to help with issues such as toileting needs or simply help with an activity.

If your child is anxious about staying without his/her parents at first, parents are encouraged to stay and devote some time to help the child become more comfortable and confident in his/her new surrounding.
