Hi wanting to get an impression of interest for forest kindergarten. The idea is to have a permanent base well developed for outdoor play, rope bridges, swings, log climbing, balancing, tool area, willow dens, sand and unstructured materials to explore, hammocks and teepee tents to access for shelter. Built into the day will be a nature trail. Is this something that appeals, look forward to hearing your thoughts.

I think it sounds great. I know that there's already one on the Southside, so would you be thinking of establishing one in the West of the city? www.woodlandoutdoorkindergartens.com/ looks like it's similarish.

The issues for me would be proximity, how you ensure early years education - letters etc - wouldn't suffer and what you would do in the winter when it is dark for so much of the day.
