COMMUNICATION:
Communication between parents, teachers, neighbours and children is very important to the development of the children’s learning in Forest School. We encourage frank and honest feedback among all stakeholders, so that we can improve as a community.

MINDSET:
Parents are required to align their mentality and frequency with the forest school community. Hence the following points are important for the development of our young learners in forest school.

1. Parents have to respect the child, as much as they respect an adult. With that, we have to believe what a child says, no matter how ridiculous it may sound at times. This is done only when we trust them. This trust, will ripple down the years, into a greater self-belief in everything he/she participate in.

2. Quarrels have to be allowed. We have to allow the young learners to resolve their disagreement and discussion on their own, without interfering with their conversation or fights, with our adult perspective. This will allow them, to learn how to navigate the real world, in terms of emotional and social interaction. The effect, will be a more confident child as well, because they realise they can settle their own issues. (However, we will stand in their presence just to ensure no safety is compromised).

3. Never give negative judgement on young learners’ effort and sincerity, no matter what the outcome is. This is a no go area. We want our young learner to value their journey and efforts, so that they can grow the resilience to keep trying. Negative judgements will teach them that other things are more important than their own heart and soul.

4. We all make mistakes, so in the forest school community, we will all keep an open mind. Always ask “Why did the person make the mistake? Is there something going on in their heart and mind, that is troubling them?” We put together our open mind and concern for each other, we will give our children a loving environment that they can learn much more from, to develop their own wholesome character and learning journey.
