This forest kindergarten is an excellent case of using this innovative idea, in sometimes challenging urban areas. All nurseries should have an element of this. I would recommend trusting the staff with their skills and encouraging them to go beyond the usual fearful constraints of ‘safety’ and ‘regulation’ which actually often work against the long term interests of children by stunting their experience of adventure, risk and the real world. My son asked daily which nursery he was going to, and was always delighted when he heard it was this one, not the council’s.
