Welcome to our Forest School Programme

Dear Parent/Guardian, 

 

Thank you for choosing Swindon Tuition Centre! Our mission and ethos is to encourage the development of children’s emotional and physical development through outdoor play, activities and exploration in a woodland environment.

At Dream Wild Forest School, we will be helping the children to connect with and learn through their local environment. The philosophy of Forest School is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive experiences and participation in engaging and motivating achievable tasks. 

 

When choosing Swindon Tuition Centre as your learning provider, the parent/carer is agreeing to our Terms & Conditions.
