Our aim is to help children, families and adults reconnect with the natural world in a meaningful and fun way – through Forest School activities and Environmental Education.

A friendly, open atmosphere in which to enjoy games, moments of calm, creativity and learning new nature skills are central to the sessions we facilitate.

We cater for children, families as well as adult groups.

Reconnect with Nature is led by Barbara Sullivan, a certified Forest School Programme Leader, who also holds degrees in Geography and Archaeology.

Barbara is garda vetted, holds an outdoor first aid certificate (REC 2), and has completed child protection training (Children First). She also holds a Level 6 certificate in Early Childhood Education and Care (including Special Needs Assisting and After School Care).

Regular Forest School sessions are currently ongoing in:

  • Tullamore, Co. Offaly
  • Newcastle Woods, Co. Longford
  • Clondarrig Community Farm, Co. Laois

Barbara is  a member of the Heritage in Schools expert panel and caters for primary schools in Laois, Offaly, Carlow, and parts of Kildare, Westmeath, and Tipperary.
