Forest school is an educational approach to outdoor learning. The aim of our forest school sessions is to bring learning experiences outside the classroom and practice speaking English. Trained practitioners nurture child led exploration and discovery, creating meaningful and positive experiences with lifelong impacts. We recognise the social, emotional and physical needs of a participant: our role is to facilitate achieving these goals and guide each individual on their unique journey.

Located close to the school district in the heart of Zollikon, we welcome all children aged 4 - 8 years to join our English speaking kids club - for all levels of speakers. Engaging activities led in English by the qualified teachers to practice their language skills. The programme focuses on developing communication and social skills among peers.
