Show Notes

We're back with Susan Caruso of Sunflower Creative Arts in Florida in the US! We dig deep into this non profit organisation in this episode. Susan shares with us how she had to pivot and create new enterprises at Sunflower with the onset of a global pandemic, whilst also staying true to the organisation's values built around community. You'll hear about the challenges, and you'll also hear how there was time to reflect and make changes. More importantly you'll hear about the incredible impact of community. One of my favourite episodes on the podcast - enjoy!

KIN Nature Kindergarten in all weathers

Joining me is Sal Preston, a pioneer who set up Monmouthshire's first outdoor nursery in 2019. The thing that I find about people who set up projects like this on their own, is the sheer amount of determination and passion it takes. It may have been a tough first year, but there is also so much potential growth to come in today's new outdoor-focused world! I want to find out how today's guest went from teaching in mainstream primary schools to operating her own outdoor nursery.SERIES 1: The Road That Led Us Here.  In this first series for the Nature Nurtures Podcast, we interview pioneers in education about how they built their businesses, and the journey that brought practitioner to their role in working with children.

The Homestead is Doing Incredible Work

Joining me are Rachel and Kim from The Homestead Nursery, a reggio inspired, outdoor loving setting in beautiful Wales. Theirs is an inspirational journey! From buying an established nursery to turning it into something incredibly special. These women hold research-informed practice dear to the hearts. They have set about opening The Homestead, coming from their roles as Early Years Teacher, and Midwife and Health Visitor. I think this makes for a really wonderfully unique setting for young children, with a firm foundation in knowledge of child development.   Series 1: The Road That Led Us Here In this first series we interview pioneers in education about how they built their businesses, and the journey that brought practitioner to their role in working with children.
