We recently gave a presentation and delivered a workshop at the National Associate of Head Teachers conference and as such, requests for individual training and site visits have been coming in thick and fast. Our capacity to cope with the level of enquiries has officially hit its limit!

In response, as we know so many of you are extremely keen to see what we do at Little Forest Folk, to feel inspired and to ask those burning ‘how do you..?’ questions, we are excited to announce the launch of Little Forest Folk training days.

Little Forest Folk training days will take place in Wimbledon, South West London on selected dates in 2018 for small groups limited to a maximum of 16 attendees per training day.

See below for more details!

Training Itinerary

Training Day Overview

We want to help achieve the greatest change possible through our training days and so will have a tightly packed schedule as follows:

  • 9am-10am indoor session to discuss how children learn and the potential of self-directed learning within nature
  • 10am-12pm a visit to our Little Forest Folk Wandsworth nursery site
  • 12pm-12.30pm a picnic lunch, Little Forest Folk style on Wimbledon Common
  • 12.30pm-2pm a visit to our Little Forest Folk Wimbledon nursery site
  • 2pm-4pm reflection on our visits and observations we’ve made on the children’s play, followed by a detailed question and answer session and deeper discussion on the potential for learning within nature.
  • 4pm-4.30pm as a part of our training day we would like each attendee at the height of their inspiration to consider what they could take from our training and use to improve their own practice. These goals will be discussed as a group and we will then explain our 12-week follow-up protocol in which we will support and encourage you to achieve your goal.
