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.
“The children and staff particularly enjoyed the outdoor aspect of our EKO@WestonPark Day, especially toasting marshmallows around the fire. The range of activities the children took part in throughout the day had strong curriculum links as well as great links with wellbeing, PHSE and connection to nature”.
Teaching Science Outdoors
'Natasha led very informative and inspiring outdoor learning CPD sessions. It was great for me and the primary school Science leaders to experience the benefits of learning outdoors ourselves and see how you can run purposeful and memorable, national curriculum linked lessons, with very little equipment and so much learning.'
Thanks so much for making our daughter and us as a family feel so welcome, she has had a great time and has come home each day full of excitement.
“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!!”
After School Clubs
" I think that it's been a great year for uptake and the children involved have all really enjoyed it! All credit to Rachel who has done a fantastic job of leading the sessions. She's great fun and keeps it all well under control!"
