Muddy Puddle Training

I have recently completed the Muddy Puddle training for Stages 1-4. The team at Muddy Puddle provided me with constant support, using the chat facility to answer any questions quickly. I have found this training to be very beneficial to myself, thinking of alternative ways to teach outside of the classroom environment. Also, of benefit to my class, they have fully embraced being outside in all elements.

Completing this course has enabled all…

Completing this course has enabled all teachers and TA’s to teach the children confidently about our outdoor surroundings and Environment to help bond children with nature and respect the world we live in. Instead of once a month the adults take the children out when needed which helps them focus no matter what time of year.
