For: All working in Early Learning and Childcare

Each training is designed for Early Years Practitioners keen to use the outdoors more but who are just not sure of those first few steps. We will spend time in a habitat specific to the training, looking at practicalities, some potential activities, responsible use of the habitat and specifically – site risk assessment.  The sessions will be as interactive and practical as possible, with opportunity to share and develop activities and ideas within the group.
