I first became involved with Forest School in 2000 and the whole experience had a profound effect on my life. I became a full-time Forest School Leader and went on to establish a Forest School training company. Now, through Muddy Faces, I get to support Forest School Leaders and understand the unique and wonderful work that they do. It’s really exciting to see a Forest School day and to celebrate all that is Forest School. Hopefully, over time, it will become a great focus for raising awareness.
I am now working on a very exciting project, the OUTDOOR HUB, an online resource which already has a huge amount of material available and has been developed for sharing outdoor events, activities and information. This will be a great place to let people know about Forest School day.
Muddy Faces will definitely be celebrating Forest School day hoorraahhhh!!!!
