Last week, enid and I had the pleasure of meeting with Jon Cree who is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the recently founded Forest School Association in the UK. This non-profit association was established a year ago, and has grown to a membership of 500 in a very short time.
“The FSA is the professional body and dedicated voice for Forest School within the UK. We are devoted to promoting quality Forest School for all.” (http://www.forestschoolassociation.org/)
Jon was in Canada carrying out Forest School training in New Brunswick and Ontario. This training was organized by Forest Schools Canada (http://www.forestschoolcanada.ca), and was attended primarily by teachers and early childhood educators. We look forward to further dialogue with Forest Schools Canada about future training opportunities in western Canada.
