I have known Anna in a professional capacity since June 2012 when I was lucky enough to have her leading an ‘Introduction to Forest School’ day course at Brockhill Country Park, Kent. Anna led a group of us teachers through a wonderful and vibrant day of Forest School fun, introducing us to the theory behind the practice and showing us a wide range of practical skills to use with children. The training was an incredible and fun introduction to Forest School and its values and left us all thirsty for more!
After that initial training day Anna has been invaluable in offering support to enable us as a school to realise our own vision of becoming a Forest School. She advised me through the different training options to become a Forest School leader and that help was invaluable in helping me make the right decision. Anna also visited us at school and undertook site visits to help us make the most of our outdoor space, giving us incredibly useful advice as to what could be done to make the most of the land we had. No question seemed too trivial and I knew that Anna was accessible via email for further advice when/if needed.
Since the initial training with Anna I quickly booked onto and undertook my Level 3 Forest School training and have been very happily running weekly Forest School sessions ever since. I cannot recommend Anna highly enough.
