At Snapdragons we recognise the impact that being outdoors can have on children’s learning and development. Whether within the boundaries of a city or out in the rural wilds there are plenty of opportunities to take advantage of the outside every day.
Each nursery has its own unique outdoor area and access to natural spaces a short journey beyond its doors which allow children to have positive learning experiences in all weathers, throughout the changing seasons.
Our Leader of Outdoor Learning is Tim Graham. Tim is a qualified level three Forest School Leader and travels around the nurseries inspiring and providing exciting and engaging sessions for children and enhancing the outdoor provision at the nurseries. He runs training and mentors staff to improve the quality of their interactions with groups outdoors as well as supporting a growing cohort of Snapdragons practitioners who are on the path to becoming qualified Forest School Leaders.
