Alfresco Learning is an outdoor learning company dedicated to bringing the National Curriculum together with outdoor learning to create an inclusive approach and provide memorable learning experiences for all children.
We understand the challenges faced by teachers when taking on outdoor learning because we are teachers. Time spent getting ready, resources, managing whole-class sizes single-handed; we have experienced it all for ourselves and can offer you practical solutions.
Many of the schools we have visited have gone on to develop their curriculum to include more time outdoors. Having incorporated more outdoor activities, staff always say how much they’re enjoying their time teaching again. For us this is what Alfresco Learning is all about! Unlocking the potential in outdoor learning for everyone!
Whilst teaching a class with very challenging behaviour, I discovered the unlimited potential in reaching children with many differing needs through outdoor learning. There’s nothing I love more than sharing this ability to establish new connections, with other educators and opening up their classrooms to all of the opportunities available outdoors.
Personal well-being played a key role in developing my passion for nature, watching as educators become grounded and refreshed through simply taking everyday lessons outdoors is what drives me to continue spreading Alfresco Learning’s key messages.
