Sam Mihajlovic, Head of Early Years, Braeburn School, Nairobi, Kenya

I just wanted to share with you the impact that your training from last August has had on our team. Immediately after our wonderful session with you we started thinking very seriously about how we could incorporate some nature into our setting. We went on a little recce to Ngong Forest to find out if this would be a suitable place for a forest visit. It was so wonderful (and only 10 minutes away!) that we have made it into a monthly Nature Day excursion for the children on FS1 and FS2.
