Training

Early Years Outdoor Training

Our aim is simple - to provide the right physical and mental environment for every child to reach their full potential.

We have refurbished the entire nursery and meticulously adapted our indoors and outdoors to support our aim for every child to reach their full potential! Designed to let each child explore and grow at their own pace, our homely and friendly indoors complementing the green, natural and adventurous outdoors, provides the perfect, fun and creative environment. 

We now offer specialised training in outdoor learning for early years. Steven White, our resident Nursery Manager is a specialist in this area. Steven has been developing and delivering bespoke coaching and training to individuals and groups for 18 years throughout the UK, Europe, North America and Asia. In addition to this Steven has successfully led teams in Education as Head of several highly established early years settings, within Scotland. These settings all focus particularly on an Outdoor Education and Steven has been instrumental in supporting the growth of the nature pedagogy in mainstream education throughout Scotland.

The courses outlined below are samples of what we can offer, however we can provide more practical training sessions such as fire building and den building. We are able to tailor our courses to your requirements, please get in touch with us to discuss.

Please listen to Steven sharing his thoughts about early years and nature pedagogy at Kathy Brodie's Autumn Summit.  It gives an insight into our beliefs and approach at Tiptoes Nursery within the early years sector.

Language of Literacy and Mathematics in Early Years

Course Length: 3 hours

Course Type: Face to face

At present there is a high level of talk going on in our educational settings and not enough listening. This course will discuss the benefits of both and produce a base line for practitioners to create a platform for literacy and language, that is in relation to our children and that is in context to their world. Maths surround us in everyday life and yet we tend to think that we have no immediate connection with the subject. We will explore how to recognise this, and how to engage with and nurture young children in our care, to connect with Mathematics in ways that make sense to them in their daily life.

Feedback from our courses so far:

"I found the professional dialogue exchange motivational. I have been inspired to look at literacy and numeracy from a new perspective." - Early Years Practitioner

"The challenge questions posed by Steven inspired my team to look inwards and reflect on current levels of service provision, he provided high quality examples of literacy and numeracy experiences being offered within his setting to challenge their thinking. Steven's vision was evident and has inspired me to lead my team to further explore innovative methods of positively engaging our children going forwards." - Manager

"Interesting and informative training session offering innovative ideas to extend literacy and numeracy experiences for every child.' - Early Years Practitioner

"The training made me reflect the way I speak to the children and will impact on my future interactions." - Trainee
