It is easy to see how children thrive and develop in an outdoor environment. Forest School Leader and business owner, Karen Meakin-Scott, recognized the worth of the environment and began Cedars Forest School.
Set in lush woodland, surrounded by a picturesque working farm, Cedars Forest School emerged. Featuring a natural wildlife pond, many trees and other wild flora as well as flourishing wildlife, the space lends itself beautifully to its newfound purpose. Placed in a small clearing the fire pit further enhances the Forest School experience. Many children have been enriched through a variety of valuable opportunities in the safe, nurturing environment provided at Cedars Forest School.
With nearly 20 years of Primary School experience under her belt along with her love of the great outdoors, Karen has seen first-hand the worth of outdoor learning. Keen to develop opportunities for learning in an outdoor environment Karen extended her skillset and became a qualified Forest School Leader. Having worked as a Forest School Leader in other environments, Karen set about the task of establishing a dedicated Forest School area, and so Cedars Forest School began.
