A Practitioner’s Guide: Forest Kindergarten Training

A Practitioner’s Guide: Forest Kindergarten Training

 

‘When we observed a Forest Kindergarten, I saw that the children were not afraid to climb trees to get mucky, but this is all positive risk taking. When children climb trees or get muddy, they are exploring and growing in resilience and confidence, it teaches them not to be afraid’- Mairead, Glasgow Clyde College student 

In this week’s guest blog we hear from Mairead a student on the HNC in Childhood Practice at Glasgow Clyde College course. As part of her course Mairead undertook a 3 day Forest Kindergarten training programme,  in this blog she shares her both her outdoor learning experience and some handy and practical tips!
