Having successfully managed the Chalfont St Giles Playgroup for over 9 years, I had been interested in the growing popularity of the Forest School concept, and following a full training course, introduced this great outdoors learning experience to the group. It was soon clear that this was my passion, the effect of nature and the great outdoors on childrens concentration, learning and communication really can be quite amazing. So I decided to focus fully on this learning environment with Forest Tribe Friends, a private child minding practise operating from my home…and garden.. in Chalfont St Giles. Children in my care following the recognised Early Years Learning framework, but with a focus on fresh air, playing in, and learning from the great outdoors… we can get messy and muddy but we’ve got a change of clothes and a warm hot chocolate in the cabin when we get back indoors. If you are interested please give me a call.
Of course I have all the necessary qualifications including:
- Paediatric First Aid
- 16 Hour Forest School First Aid
- Cache Level 3 NVQ in Childrens Care, Learning and Development
- Level 3 Certificate in Forest School Programme Leadership
