As part of the on going training and development at Shooting Stars, this Saturday staff from each of our nurseries took part in an amazing training opportunity at a unique field studies centre called Bishops Wood in Worcestershire.
The aim of the training is to develop staff confidence in using outdoor environments with all of our children across the settings. The training provided inspiration and ideas for learning and teaching opportunities in the outdoors. It also helps promote and support staff enjoyment in the outdoors, providing understanding for the unique environments surrounding them and going back to their nursery primed with a unique set of experiences. The staff were also trained on how to analyse risk and benefit and understand the importance of risk and challenge for our children’s development.
