The trainers were absolutely brilliant. Their enthusiasm was positively infectious and gave me a new love of life in the outdoors! They were insightful, knowledgeable, flexible to the needs of the group, and made the whole training experience one to remember.

— Bethany, a Forest Kindergarten Leader Course attendee

I have loved seeing how much my son has grown and become part of the group. The change in the confidence and happiness of my wee girl is life changing to me. It actually brings me to tears of happiness! I want to say a massive thank you — the sessions you run are amazing.

— Elaine, a parent who participated in our Nurturing Nature workshops

Break times will improve because everyone will be more sociable, everyone will talk to each other more, and people will feel more included. Everyone will want to be in the school grounds. I’ve made new friends and learned communication skills and how to have fun with other people.
