Forest School Experience Day Tickets
Dec 2 all-day
Forest School Experience Day @ New Territories | Hong Kong

Led by their Level 3 FSA-certified Forest School Leader, Yvette Cheevers, MCHK is bringing you the experience of what a Forest School program is all about.  Parents all over the world, especially in Hong Kong, are worried about children’s lack of engagement with nature. A significant amount of research has shown that the emotional, social, and physical development of young children directly impacts their overall growth to an adult. To flourish as healthy individuals, it is critical for young children to interact with the natural environment.  Therefore, MCHK actively strives to facilitate outdoor learning experiences for the youth. Accordingly, they include the Forest School Program into their curriculum during the early years.
