Tír na nÓg Forest School provides children with an outdoor education experience where they take the lead of their own learning by following their individual interests at their pace through a hands-on, experiential approach.

Children develop confidence, self-esteem and meaningful relationships with the natural world and their Forest School community as they engage in play and exercise supported problem-solving and risk taking through long-term exploration of their woodland setting.

“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)
