Out Of the Box #9: Forest School Singapore

The philosophy behind Forest School Singapore is strongly linked with the history of kampungs and tropical living - they fervently believe in the importance of community spirit. Their approach is guided by three pillars of leadership: Nature-Led, Child-Led, and Context-Led. We find out more about this school, where Mother Nature and the Environment are the main teachers, and how it cultivates a space that empowers children, from Darren Quek, the Founder of Forest School. 

Out Of The Box is a monthly series where we explore alternative ways to teach and learn, done in collaboration with Anyaman Preschool.
