outside the UK, this course is suitable for you and your children aged 5-7 years.
Who can do this training?

educator and be able to link to your curriculum.

So how does it work?
The course consists of two hours of reading and two hours of practical outdoor learning
tasks. All your training will happen alongside children, in either a school or home setting. We
also use only natural and up-cycled resources. This makes our outdoor curriculum very cost-effective, manageable and unique. Read about our Muddy Green Promise here.
