Forest School Routines and Boundaries

Forest School Routines and Boundaries

A short online course that looks at why routines and boundaries are important and how to implement them

Why Boundaries?

Building your confidence to take groups outside relies good routines and boundary setting.  When boundaries are in place, you and your group can relax and allow them to explore and take appropriate risks, and not always be under your gaze.

We want to build trust and independence, all attributes that are developed when there is a sense of security and positive relationship.
