SCHOOL & CENTRE WORKSHOPS
Hosting a workshop for your staff enables us to tailor our workshops to cater to your specific staff and centre's needs and provides practical training onsite that will instill your staff with the confidence they need to run Outdoor Learning programs.
We want to get more children outdoors and the best way for us to do this is to educate educators in the most affordable way possible.
We can run workshops at your school/centre, your Bush Kindy/Forest School/Outdoor Learning site, or our own.
So, fill out the form below and we can start creating your own customised workshop to get staff feeling confident to take your children outdoors!
Yes, we do offer Mentoring for services and educators who would like to learn about Forest School, Outdoor Learning, Outdoor Classrooms etc in a hands-on, practical way by being a part of our programs. Due to the high number of inquiries and our desire to ensure our children aren't overwhelmed with new faces and that their program isn't compromised, we only offer a limited amount of these placements per year. Please contact us for further information and prices.
