Advisory Visits

Half/Full Day Visit

We will visit your setting and carry out a full audit of the space, taking into account the existing outdoor practice and provision.

A detailed written report will be produced summarising findings from the visit. 

The report will include inspiration and recommendations for development, with clear plans for improving both the space and staff practice.

Advice and tools will also be provided to allow you to develop a plan for your site and develop it into an inspirational learning play and teaching environment that can be enjoyed by children and classes for many years to come.

To help you build momentum and excitement during the project, we will provide ideas on how you can include the wider community in the development process.

We will provide guidance on overcoming common obstacles and how to maximise the potential of your outdoor space.

Training & Workshops

Our bespoke training programmes aim to inspire and support staff to take learning outside. Teachers will develop skills and the confidence to transform their teaching practice by addressing obstacles they face day to day when delivering outdoor learning and play.
