Forest school leaders

Maggie Scrimgeour is a Level 3 Forest School Leader who works at Into the Woods Nursery in Highgate, London, runs a 5-7 year old home school group and a monthly family forest school session in Queens Wood. She was inspired by the forest school ethos and educational approach in 2008 when her son was born. Through her research and experience in educator she began to understand how children who have limited access to the countryside and wild space need to be facilitated to spend time outdoors and that this should be creative and child led.
