Out There Forest school & Kindergarten: Early Years Practitioner


Do you believe that young children are best suited to spending their day outside learning through direct experience with the natural world around them?

Are you inspired by the endless possibilities of teaching in an outdoor classroom? Would you like to be a part of a passionate team who place outdoor play and learning at the heart of what they do?

We are an adventurous and progressive Forest School and Preschool that encourages children to explore their natural surroundings and seek out new challenges. We allow children the freedom to tumble down mud slides, climb trees, build obstacle courses and revel in fresh air and the wonders of nature.


We are looking for an experienced early years practitioner who shares our vision and values to join our team. Our ideal candidate will be resilient, high-energy and committed to providing an outstanding early years education in a largely outdoor environment. You will have sound knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage and be able to scaffold an environment for child-led, play-based learning.
