Career at Nature Explorers School
We aim to be an authentic forest school which strives to nurture children to the best their abilities. What this means is we want children to be confident, to be secure about their strengths and have a positive outlook of life. We believe that nature and the outdoors, is an environment that is engaging and challenging for every individual in their own way, so long as we as coaches know how to set the right learning atmosphere for the children. We are firm believers in child-led learning, so our job is to follow children’s instincts, guide them and know when to layer on additional information that will help them grow in areas they are interested in.
Ultimately you need to have a caring heart, to want to help others to improve. You need to be comfortable in the outdoors, where it will be get muddy, wet, hot. You’ll need to have a sense of curiosity to always want to find out more, because the list of things we can do outdoors is endless if we fundamentally are interested in it. Survival skills, knowledge of plants and animals, craft work, are things you’ll need to be interested in.
In return, as we teach children these traits of following their instincts, we too learn along the way and we will become more aware of ourselves how to be more authentic. Children will also show us new ways of how things can be done and honest pure ways of thinking.
