Course Description –
The SQA-certificated Forest Kindergarten course has been put together to specifically meet the needs of 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.
Course dates available on our website, additional dates will be offered according to demand. For further information or to register interest in future dates, please contact email@example.com
