Baby Toad at the World Outside KIndergarten KIdderminster Worcestershire

VISION

Our vision is to create an outdoor setting within woodland where children are safe and can enjoy the freedom of being outside in a supportive, friendly and fun environment. 

We wish to inspire children with a love of learning, through nature connection in a nourishing environment, so that they may grow in mind, body and spirit.

We wish to create a high-quality nurturing setting that helps prepare your child for lifelong learning.

Through a learner led approach children will be encouraged to take measured risks to aid their development and so nurture self-esteem and self-confidence.

The children will spend most of their time in nature, caring for the environment, growing vegetables, caring for animals and being outdoors

MISSION

Every child should have a happy and secure childhood, where they have had time to develop and grow in their own way.

 

Through positive relationships The World Outside will aim to provide a secure and nurturing environment which will enable children to development holistically, whilst supporting parents as they return to work

 

The setting aims to be sustainable where the children can learn about the environment and how we can play a part, in ensuring its protection for future generations.

 

The majority of time will be spent outdoors in the woodland, where the emphasis will be on nature connection. With the use of positive language and child led activities they will enhance their emotional intelligence.

 

We aim to develop, self-esteem, self-confidence and resilience through the use of the forest school principles and by spending our time outdoors throughout the seasons, whatever the weather.

 

Each child is unique and will be given time to develop in their own way and their own pace, ensuring that their time with us is happy and fun, whilst preparing them for the next stage of their education.

Environmental Impact and Sustainability

 

At the heart of The World Outside is a love of the planet and our environment and a wish to create a setting that is sustainable and has little or no impact and preferably enhances it.

 

To do this we would aim to:

  • have buildings and equipment from sustainable sources

  • use renewable/ efficient sources of energy

  • educate the children and give them confidence to grow their own vegetables

  • reduce and recycle our waste

  • produce and cook healthy food

  • keep livestock that can provide for us

  • zero carbon footprint

  • to purchase supplies locally or from fair trade sources

  • create and nurture wildlife environments, in the form of bat boxes, wildlife and wildflower gardens, bug hotels, hibernaculum's, and bird boxes etc

 

In the short-term funding may prevent the use of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions, however, once the business is established if necessary, environmentally friendly alternatives will be sourced and implemented.

The Children

At the Kindergarten learners are all:

  • equal, unique and valuable

  • competent to explore & discover

  • entitled to experience appropriate risk and challenge

  • entitled to choose, and to initiate and drive their own learning and development

  • entitled to experience regular success

  • entitled to develop positive relationships with themselves and other people

At the Kindergarten the holistic development of each individual child is of great importance, as this will:

 

  • encourage them to use their creativity and interests

  • develop awareness that all children are different and have their own capabilities

  • enable them to learn to accept failure as part of their own development

  • develop perseverance, patience in learning, play and work

  • enable them to learn strategies for coping with resistance, motivation and self-regulation
