Meet the team



Forest school leader

I have worked with preschool children for over 10 years and also volunteered with a local scout group as a Beaver leader.


I have witnessed first-hand the benefits of children spending more time outside and in nature.


I took part in Forest school leader level 3 training and this reignited the passion I had as a child for all things play and adventure!

Qualifications: Forest school level 3, Early years level 3, Paediatric first aid, Forest school outdoor first aid, training in safeguarding, Food hygiene certificate, Working with challenging behaviour in the outdoors



Forest school assistant

I have always had a love of nature and the outdoors and remember these aspects of my childhood very fondly.


I first heard about the Forest School concept when I became a mum myself and, wanting to give my son the same experiences that I had as a child, I was immediately drawn to it.


I volunteered in various school settings both in the classroom and outdoors before taking the Forest School level 2 course in 2018.


I look forward to being able to share the wonder of the natural world with many more children.


Qualifications: Forest school level 2, Working with Challenging Behaviour in the outdoors, training in safeguarding, outdoor and paediatric first aid. 

Tree Babies Guide and Natural Mindfulness Guide.

Currently completing my top up training to Level 3 Forest School Leader.
