Educating Kids Outdoors
Educating Kids Outdoors (EKO) offers fun, outdoor experiences for children in local woodland areas or on their school site. Freedom to explore, discover and experience new ideas & challenges independently.
“Here at Woodfield Infant School we love EKO! Tasha and her staff are professional, organised and fantastic with our children. This high quality experience means our children are developing a range of important skills – from communication to physical. EKO also runs our after school club, organising everything from parental help rotas to risk assessments. I know that our children are receiving top quality outdoor education, that can be so difficult to source.”
After School Clubs
“My son attended EKO Club this Thursday and hasn't stopped talking about it being the "best club ever". He doesn't always show that much enthusiasm or drive for activities and often lacks confidence to have a go. As you can imagine, it's a delight for us to hear such positivity from him. So thank you and I hope he continues to enjoy it with you.”
“Really cannot praise you enough for what you do – you’re all so lovely and you do such a fantastic job!”
Bespoke Outdoor Learning School Days
“Just wanted to thank you so much for a wonderful day on Monday. The children absolutely loved it and responded so well with two of them saying it was the best day of their lives!! I managed to put the photos on a slide show for parents evening (Monday evening) and they were all so impressed. You were all so lovely with the children so I can’t quite thank you enough!!”
“Huge thanks for today, you and Michelle did a fabulous job and we were delighted. Edward had an amazing special birthday party and asked this evening when he can have another one! I have had so many lovely messages this evening from parents saying how wonderful the party was and how much their children enjoyed it.”
