Our Mission & Vision
Langley Forest School's mission is to support the healthy development of young children in an outdoor (place-based) environment utilizing an inclusive, child-emergent, authentic, play-based delivery to inspire engagement and inquiry. We strive to connect children to nature, through play and learning outside.
Our belief is that child-directed play-based education in nature leads to physical, social, emotional and intellectual wellbeing, creating confident young stewards of the Earth, prepared for lifelong learning. We believe in every child's right to experience the natural world as part of their education now and in the future, committed to supporting the growing global effort to sustain, heal, and become stewards of the earth. By emphasizing the development of self-regulation, self-direction, and self-reflection, we provide children with the educational foundation that will support them for the rest of their lives.
