Forest School Level 3 Training

Forest School Level 3 Training – with a focus on Early Years

Additional unit to include SEN in the Outdoors.

**Now enrolling for 2018**

Nature to Nurture and Communitree are combining our talents to deliver the very best in early years knowledge and Forest School expertise.

We are passionately committed to creating opportunities for children to experience a natural childhood, learn in the outdoors and connect with nature.

Our training is creative, innovative and will leave learners inspired, motivated and ready to positively influence the lives of young children and adults.

Quality is at the heart of everything we do.

Our high standards will provide the best opportunity for learners to qualify with a deep embedded knowledge and understanding that will enable learners to feel confident to deliver programmes to children.

Our outdoor nursery has allowed for a deeper understanding of how the environment benefits the development of children in their early years.

We have looked at the biological, societal and environmental influences that are impacting on children in their earliest years, and we have developed a range of strategies that fully support the development of the child’s growing body and mind.

We believe that it is this unique understanding that has enabled us to develop a niche within the forest school training that will enable practitioners to effectively support children outdoors. It draws on the forest school ethos of supporting children’s wellbeing as well as looking at strategies to develop children’s sensory foundational systems.
