"Amazing CPD day on 16th May. Ofsted say they are outstanding and I would totally agree. In fact if there was a grade above outstanding Little Forest Folk would achieve it. They are not a forest school, they are not an eco classroom, they are simply who they say they are Little Forest Folk." - (May 2018)
"I just wanted to say thank you again for such inspiring day. It gave me so much hope!!! as a teacher, as a mother and as a human being!" - (May 2018)
"I want to thank Little Forest Folk for the amazing experience I had! My favourite part was going to the Wimbledon site and seeing the children in action! I liked that we were able to talk to the children and practitioners. The adults were amazing and were a great help if had any questions." - (May 2018)
