"Training as a Forest School Leader with Wild About Woods was brilliant! A fun and hugely informative course, supported by a crew with many years of practical experience . Gained lots of tips. The support during and after the course has been amazing. Thanks Janine for this great start and important first step!"

"Janine is a very experienced Forest School Leader and Trainer and had been incredibly supportive during my Forest School Leader training.
I was lucky to have the opportunity to learn directly from her example of running Forest school at a local primary school. She also made it possible for me to run my own 6 practical sessions with one of her groups.
Janine provided me with many practical tips and lots of valuable feedback after each session for which I will be forever grateful. It was such a valuable experience, thank you ever so much! "Jana January 2021
"During my time with Janine, as part of my trianing as a Forest School Assistant, she helped me to think about the children's development and repsonse as a group to nature based activities and games we present and she encouraged me to develop my Forest School practice" Michael 2018
"I really enjoyed learning about how to use tools with children like hand drills and fire lighters to support their learning about themselves. As a teacher it is a different approach of learning with Forest School. more like facilitating than teaching from the front. I liked working alongside children doing nature based activites like leaf Mandalas" Tash 2017
"I thought the activites we did were positive and engaging. I grew in confidence and my abilities through learning to use tools safely. We worked with saws, loppers, axes and knives. I loved using my new rope skills to build a platform. the experiences reminded me of how much I enjoyed working in the outdoors." Ben 2019
