Out There Forest School opened it's doors in August 2015, delivering forest school sessions in schools during term time, running weekly after school sessions and providing a unique 'holiday club' experience during the school holidays for children aged 5-11 year olds. Since then they have delivered countless after school and holiday club sessions, birthday parties and the Forest School experience to primary schools in Nightingale Valley and St Anne's Woods.
The opportunity to open an early years provision came about when the team expanded to include two Forest School Leaders who were also working in Bristol children's centres as early years practitioners. The combination of passion for outdoor learning, experience in early years and qualification in Forest School resulted in Out There Kindergarten.
Out There Kindergarten Brislington opened in September 2017 after a years worth of late night planning meetings. Set up by a small team of passionate, dedicated, experienced and like-minded individuals, they are primary school teachers, early years practitioners and Forest School Leaders. Together, they are totally committed to providing the very best early years experience in an outdoor setting.
Out There Forest School continues to run holiday camps in Brislington throughout the majority of school holidays. There are plans in the pipeline to open a second holiday club in Stapleton. For more information, see our holiday club section.
