WHY IS THE FOREST THE BEST FOR MY CHILD?

 

A day in the forest with Troll is unique, because at Troll your child really is ALWAYS outdoors in the natural world!

We believe that the many and varied stimuli offered by this daily experience of nature are of simply immeasurable value in childhood development.

  • The forest offers more than enough space for children to act on their natural urge for movement and activity.

  • In the forest the children are able to directly experience and understand natural phenomena throughout the seasons.

  • The forest opens up infinite possibilities for play and fantasy. We play and craft with immediately available woodland materials.

By offering only small groups since the very outset of Troll, we are able to observe and support each child as an individual. Through shared learning and playing in the forest, the children expand and develop their social and emotional skills.
