We are a small team of child care and forest school qualified professionals who share the same passion for working with children within the natural environment.
Hi, I've been in childcare for over 10 years, most of which was at a children’s centre. During this time, I completed a Forest School leaders’ course, which enabled me to become the forest school lead for the centre. The team and I delivered fun and educational forest school sessions to a small group of children and introduced parents’ sessions. Following much parent interest, these sessions proved to be extremely successful. The idea for setting up Urban Forest came from these parents and their children; their feedback was extremely positive and gave me the foundation to make this possible. I have a strong passion for working with children, the great outdoors and educating the next generation in developing deep knowledge and understanding of their local woodland and natural environment.

Hi, I have worked in childcare for over 10 years as a childminder and within nurseries. It’s such an amazing feeling seeing the progress children make especially outdoors and knowing you have contributed to that. Whilst working at a local nursery I was lucky enough to attend forest school sessions. It was so heartwarming to see children exploring and learning about the world they live in whilst having fun.
