Course Description

We are delighted to welcome Matt Robinson, Training and Development Officer with Learning through Landscapes, to lead the Autumn Conference.  Play is the way that young children engage with and learn about the world around them. Extending activities into the outdoors requires thought and support for staff to really maximise the rich and varied experiences for early years.  

The vision of Learning through Landscapes is that every child can experience the wide range of benefits by: 

  • Transforming learning;
  • Transforming spaces; and
  • Transforming childhood  

Using the Outdoor Classroom at Beaconhurst, the day will provide an insight into how children can connect with nature, become more active, learn outdoors, develop social skills and have fun.  More information about Learning through Landscapes can be found  here

Colleagues should wear clothing appropriate for the outdoors. 

All Early Years staff are warmly invited to attend this annual conference which is always a very enjoyable day and an excellent opportunity for networking.  Colleagues at Beaconhurst look forward to welcoming you and sharing their good practice that was highlighted by Education Scotland in their 2012-16 Report, this can be found   via this link

Please register as soon as possible and by Friday 22 September at the latest.
