Outdoor Audit and Consultation
Includes a day visit to your setting by Ann to audit the existing outdoor practice with the Foundation Stage Team in order to unlock the learning potential of the outdoor environment. Ann will product a detailed and in depth written report including ideas,
photographs and recommendations for the development of outstanding outdoor provision. A separate self-evaluation document is also produced to support short and long term development planning. Other support materials will help staff develop awareness of of why being outdoors is so beneficial to children's wellbeing and development and help them to
recognise and articulate the learning that happens when children have the opportunities to learn outdoors. Other resources in this package include continuous provision planning and a long term plan to follow the seasonal opportunities that the natural world offers.
