Tanglin Trust School has launched Tanglin ’ s Forest School Programme (FSP) for nursery-age children. First developed in Europe, this model brings learning outdoors so children can gain creative, personal and social skills, and an appreciation of the natural world. The programme will complement the after-school co-curricular forest adventure programme where children in Reception to Year 2 experience outdoor learning within the greenery of Wessex Estate. The FSP also connects effectively with the Curiosity Approach, for which the school is the first in Asia to receive accreditation. This approach encourages children to use authentic materials, appreciate the natural environment and use learning spaces as the third teacher. Tanglin Trust School ’ s FSP is run on a site within the school grounds by qualified Level 3 teachers and facilitators who ensure that all activities are safely managed and age-appropriate.
