Tír na nÓg Forest School is an outdoor education experience.   Our approach involves moving away from computers and man-made devices, to embrace nature.

At Tír na nÓg Forest School we believe that hands-on experiential learning is the best educational approach for children.  Being outdoors provides them with not only fresh air, it encourages imaginative play, creativity, hand-eye coordination, balance, physical strength and mental clarity. When children's natural curiosity is stimulated, learning flows.  Our program is guided by our educators, however the day remains flexible and follows the energy and lead of the children.  

We encourage you to take a few moments to browse our website and discover the Tír na nÓg Forest School experience.  

“Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, water bugs, tadpoles, frogs, mud turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, chestnuts, trees to climb. Brooks to wade, water lilies, woodchucks, bats, bees, butterflies, various animals to pet, hayfields, pine-cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets. And any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of education.”

~ Luther Burbank (American horticulturalist and botanist, 1849 – 1926)
