Here at Talkoot CIC we have a love of creativity, of being outside in nature, and of making connections with and between the people we meet.
Therefore our particular ‘talkoot’ is to nurture people’s creativity, to encourage healthy mindsets via simple tasks in natural surroundings, and to build community through shared projects and experiences.
At Talkoot we provide a specialist learning approach, influenced by Swedish Forest School and Montessori approaches. Within defined boundaries we encourage child-led sessions; giving children an equal, unique, and extremely valuable opportunity to discover nature and their own sense of independence.
Being outdoors in our Forest School encourages mindfulness, creates positive relationships, and encourages awareness and responsibility for the environment. Forest School takes a long-term, sustained approach to outdoor learning, and invites children to experience new challenges, take appropriate risks and build self-esteem through achievable tasks.
