Growing Inspirational Humans

Story Forest is a magical multilingual outdoor learning centre for children aged 3 – 11 in the beautiful Western Algarve.

A holistic approach

At the Story Forest, we use an integrated approach to learning, including mind, body, and soul, to facilitate the continuing and holistic growth of all learners. Drawing upon best practice, we utilise three main educational philosophies, within this integral design, including: Natural Learning (mind), Dragon Dreaming (body) and Non-Violent Communication (soul).

The Curriculum

We offer holistic lessons for children between 5-11 years old (Year 1-6) using objectives from the British curriculum. In addition, we offer an outdoor preschool for children between the ages of 3-5 years.

We Learn Outside

We are proud of our unique learning environment and curriculum. We use a natural learning, community-based philosophy to promote holistic development.
