Early Years Go Outdoors

Posted: November 4th 2015

Early Childhood Studies undergraduates on the final year of the degree visited Middlewood Nature Nursery in Sheffield to gain first hand insight into the experiences children have in the Forest.

Middlewood Nature Nursery was opened in January 2015 by Sarah Blackwell, the CEO of Archimedes Training and follows the Forest School approach. Students carried out observations on children and were able to reflect on the learning taking place.

Janine Ryan, BA ECS programme leader, said that ‘This visit enhanced the students’ understanding of innovative practice and enabled them to see first hand the value of the outdoors in support of children’s learning.’
