Dane, wishing you all the best in creating a site suitable for a Forest School. Hopefully the site already has plenty of established trees.
We have been users of a Forest School in South Wales about 6/7 years now, and I love it, as its already a Nature Reserve and of particular importance because of the peat bogs.
For me, apart for children learning about nature in the sunshine, fresh air, the best part was learning pythagorean theorem using trees, really what more could you ask for.
Our little ones' primary school has a Forest School, with teachers and assistants qualified to teach. The nearby playgroup has access to the Forest School area, but are not obviously allowed to say they run a Forest School, as none of the EYFS teachers have Forest School qualifications. So advertise that they have access to a Forest School site which of course is quite different.
