Show Notes

Joining me in this episode is Merril Miceli of Forest Folk, Amherst, Massachusetts, USA. We talk advocating for children and risky play, and the business of setting up a Forest School in the face of heavy regulations. This was such a great episode to put together, and I'm so glad to have connected with Merril. She is so good at being agile and responsive to challenges and opportunities in terms of her vision and model for Forest Folk. An essential episode for those having to think outside the box when it comes to setting up their own outdoor nursery.

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.
