This Forest Kindergarten Course is taking place in Edinburgh, Scotland.
We are hosting other courses – please visit the Forest Kindergarten Training homepage to read more.
The Forest Kindergarten Award has been designed to specifically meet the needs of Early Years practitioners who would like to use outdoor spaces on a regular basis, for learning and play.
Candidates will be trained and equipped with all the knowledge and processes they need to be able to deliver Forest Kindergarten sessions within their own setting.
The programme consists of:
Candidates will be supplied with an SQA Workbook, wider resources and all Assessment materials.
Candidates do require suitable outdoor clothing for any weather foreseeable, including wet and cold conditions. While we will adapt the course as needed to extremes of weather, we do not expect to alter the plan.

The qualification is relevant to anyone in the UK (and beyond), not just Scottish residents. You can compare Qualification levels here.
