"Jen does a stunning job at caring and accompanying the children, including on the many outings she is organising for more onsite discovery!"

Our whole approach is designed to support personal, social and ecological well-being and connection. Our curriculum is everything that we learn, whether child led, co-produced or offered by an adult. We have designed a flexible framework to guide our learning in tune with the seasons. This gives us a nature inspired rhythm as well as the freedom to be able to adapt and respond to children's passions, talents and interests.

What is a typical day like?  

We have a very open and flexible structure for each day. Some structure gives children a sense of safety whilst flexibility allows for shared planning, negotiation and real time adaptive planning (great life skills) in order for learning to emerge organically. 

A typical day

09:30 - 09:45  Welcome

09:45 - 10:00 Morning meeting 

10:00 - 12:00 Play, projects and plans for the day

12:00 - 12:30  Lunch (in reality, the children eat whenever they are hungry)

13:00 - 15:00  Play, projects and plans for the day

15:00 - 15:30  Tidy up and afternoon meeting

15:30 - 16:30 Afternoon club (self directed special interests) for those who stay

Our projects have included; 

On a day to day basis, we are highly adaptive to allow space for play, emergent learning and organic growth. Sometimes we learn indoors, sometimes we take our learning outside. Sessions are for mixed ages 5 - 11 years (Years 1 - 6). There are many advantages of mixed age learning, including that younger children learn from older role models, while older children benefit from being able to explain their learning to younger children.
