Yorkshire Forest Folk is run by sisters, Sophie and Emily, both former primary school teachers with a passion for getting outdoors, exploring nature and seeing children flourish in a natural environment.
Sophie is an experienced Primary School Teacher who, after eight years of teaching, has left the classroom to develop her real passion for children learning both through play and in nature. She is a Forest School Practitioner and is a qualified Outdoor First Aider.
As well as being mum to 3 children between 6 and 10 years old, Emily also taught in Early Years Education for 5 years. Having experienced many pre school sessions with her own children she understands the importance of creating experiences that benefit both children and adults, fundamentally in a natural environment.
