Holly Dabbs: Founder Foxglove Forest School and Leader
Always fascinated by the outdoors she was hooked by Forest School after being one of the first teachers in the UK to qualify as a Skogsmulle leader. Skogsmulle is an Swedish learning approach for 5-7yr olds which encourages learning and emotional development in children through storytelling and outdoor play.
This experience led her her to train as a Level 3 Forest School Leader in London. She worked as a practitioner with outdoor Nurseries and social enterprises before having her first child . While on maternity leave Foxglove Forest School was born!.
Foxglove Forest School brings together Holly's passion for Early Years and the outdoors. As an educator she has designed and delivered arts content for children and families across the UK. Recent clients include Historic Royal Palaces, Dulwich Picture Gallery and BBC at the Edinburgh festivals.
