Here's the team behind the world of Korpi Forest School!

A Note from Jen

With a background in SEND, I’m passionate about creating an accessible and inclusive environment for children to grow and thrive. I believe in nurturing the self-esteem, resilience and mental wellbeing of our children and allowing them to learn through exploration and play. For me, the outdoors is the best place for this learning to take place! I hope you can fall as in love with the world and the benefits of Korpi Forest School as
I have!
