A mixture of indoor and outdoor classroom attendance with online tutorials and learning materials.

This course has been put together to specifically meet the needs of early years practitioners who would like to set up a regular routine of off-site visits to a local wood or nearby greenspace for children in their setting.
It is becoming increasingly recognised that there are many benefits to allowing
children to play freely in local woodlands on a frequent and regular basis. This includes increased physical activity, greater knowledge about nature and in the long term, a stronger likelihood that these children grow up to become adults who understand and demonstrate positive attitudes and actions towards caring for the
environment.
