About Forest School

The Irish Forest School Association was founded in 2016 to support the development of Forest School learning in Ireland. Our members comprise practitioners (that is trained Forest School leaders), researchers, teachers, early years’ practitioners, and organisations and individuals interested in innovation, creativity, education, play, science, environmental awareness and care, and the outdoors. Our mission is to support the development of quality Forest Schools in a diverse range of settings in Ireland. Our current model of practice draws much from the UK Forest School Association (FSA).
