Arctic Outdoor Preschool was first broadcast on Japanese public television, has since been seen on Teachers TV and The Community Channel, won Best Children's Programme at the 2009 Northern Character Film Festiva, and is widely used as a case study in Early Years and Forest School teacher training courses. Instead of telling 5-year-olds not to touch matches, why not teach them how to light fires properly? This film is a warm and powerful insight into the benefits of teaching children how to manage risk rather than avoiding it.

 

Please note this film is also available as a digital download, part of our Learning for Real compilation DVD, and as part of our Learning for Real screening package.

 

We use this brilliant film as a teaching aid for any new members of staff. The teacher is inspirational and the children and their achievements are amazing.
