Who we are70

We believe education is about living people, not products or data points. Our network of educators, parents, social entrepreneurs and researchers are creating a socially mobile, empowering culture of change within education. Opportunities for change exist in every school and community. We are here to support you in designing, creating and launching your education project; be it a progressive nursery school, home and community education programme, or micro-school.

 

"The world is undergoing revolutionary changes; we need a revolution in education too. Like most revolutions, this one has been brewing for a long time, and in many places it is already under way. It is not coming from the top down; it is coming, as it must do, from the ground up." -Sir Ken Robinson, Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That's Transforming Education

Our Ethos

For us, childhood is the time not for competitiveness but for self discovery, developing curiosity, confidence and the skills to become active participants in a democratic society.

Our Mission

To improve outcomes for children by sharing knowledge and practice, and to challenge and improve what we do by keeping our minds open to new ways of thinking and being.

The Authentic Adult

When we help a child to feel secure, feel appreciated, feel that “somebody is deeply, truly interested in me,” by the way we look, the way we listen, we influence that child’s sense of worth and the way that child sees life.

Introducing one of our awesome partners for the Nature Nurtures 2018 National Conference, Nurture Outdoor Kindergarten. Founded in 2015, Nurture Outdoor Kindergarten was formed on the idea that a progressive education model can be combined with embracing the outdoor environment to create a vibrant,innovative Early Years setting where children's inherent desire to learn about themselves and their world is nurtured.
