We have been running Forest School sessions for the past decade. Our approach is child centred and we are able to creatively design a program depending on the needs of the group. Having worked with all ages and abilities, from Corporate Team building to MIND days and with many children, we ensure that everyone has a memorable time in nature.
Our Forest and Beach school sessions are fun, engaging and educational. We provide a safe framework for children to discover the wonders of nature in their own way.
As Forest School leaders we are passionate about creating lasting memories of the outdoor experience that can inform and enhance their relationship to their natural world.
We offer training days for teachers and outdoor providers to resource them to successfully take groups outside, providing both activities and confidence.
Green Steps have been working in partnership with the Woodland Trust since 2016 when we became part of the Tree Charter celebration. We have worked with Dr Mz youth group and Coleg Sir Gar in Green Castle woods doing woodland management, coppicing and tree planting. During 2018 we worked closely with schools local to Coed Ffos Las, the Welsh Centaury Woodland Trust site to name the parcels of land. We have been the lead providers of the regional Tree Planting week since 2018. www.woodlandtrust.org.uk
Green Steps are freelance tutors for Tir Coed, a local woodland charity. Since 2016 we have delivered bespoke days as well as three month accredited programmes in sustainable woodland management and greenwood working skills. Working with both children and adults with learning difficulties, we have offered a range of activities that all work to boost people’s self-esteem and sense of well-being. www.tircoed.org.uk
