Sarah brings her love of learning through nature, knowledge of child development and the national curriculum, alongside her experience of coaching outdoors to create a day of seeing the world through fresh eyes.
Using our time in some beautiful outdoor environments we will explore the symbolism and positive outcomes of nature connection, and consider the challenges of taking groups outside.
You will gain the confidence and insights to maximise the benefits of taking groups outdoors. You will be able to communicate how and why nature connection promotes physical, intellectual and mental wellbeing, develops social and emotional intelligence, and builds our resilience for the challenging bits of life.
