Upcoming events


                    ... to our programme for 2020-21.

During this time, we are focussing on professional development work including online courses and bespoke professional development for individual centres.

If you are interested in discussing bespoke professional development possibilities for your centre please get in touch: email .

During autumn 2020 we are offerring online seminars. Many of these are discursive, although some are a presentation style. If you are interested in a group participation, for example, a whole staff group, please contact to discuss a group rate, and practicalities. We want to encourage group participation, but as the seminars differ in style we need to consider each case, and can hopefully offer you a discount and coupon code. Email  to enquire. 

01 ELiN SI

A five-session online course intending to guide you through helpful beginnings in developing your pedagogy in nature, with discussions of narratives from 'Learning to Learn in Nature', preparation guidance and general readiness.

Learning to Learn in Nature is about young children learning in wild places, and educators learning with them. It is about being in connection with nature and bringing that connection back to the classroom. But it is also about something more, something that is seen very clearly when children are given the freedom to explore the wild outdoors on their own terms, with daring and imagination.

It is about learning as a process of continuous enquiry: an expression of insatiable fascination with the world, in which children learn together and individually, and educators and children work together to discover and make meaning. School life is part of human life, connected to its cycles, desires, dreams, wonderings. Educators best meet the interests of children when fundamental human values inform and shape their pedagogical practice.

Our Autumn 2020 course will echo the framework of our action-research publication Learning to Learn in Nature: Discovering the Forest, Meeting the Unknown, Competence and Autonomy, Building a Culture Together, Journeys of Change.. Each session will feature  a presentation of material, invitations to help you structure your encounters in nature to encourage yours and your children's iimagination & learning, group discussion and questions.
