THIS DAY IS NOW FULLY BOOKED!
Over the years I have been blogging and undertaking consultancy work, I’ve had the privilege of being able meet people involved in the Swedish Skogsmulle approach and undergo Skogsmulle training. Back in 2008, when I undertook a Churchill Travelling Fellowship, I spent 2 weeks in Sweden visiting outdoor nurseries and primary schools. The reports about this can be downloaded here. In particular, the Swedish Forest Schools report is a useful summary of the Skogsmulle approach.
This summer, Siw Linde, one of the founders of the first I Ur och Skur “Rain or Shine” outdoor nurseries is visiting the UK with 2 other Skogsmulle leaders and offering training in Wales (contact Cyfleon) and Manchester (fully booked). They will be in Aberdeen for a day and the local Outdoor & Woodland Learning North-East Group have organised a super day which costs just £30 to attend.
Please come along if you can. You need to download a booking form and return it to Julia Mackay. I look forward to seeing you there! Any questions, please get in touch. The day is ideal for anyone who works with children under the age of 6.
