I'm wondering if anyone can help me...

I'm on the hunt for any nomadic outdoor pre-schools - nature, forest, whatever! There's a huge issue over hand hygiene in Scotland happening and I've been asked (voluntarily) to find out what other nomadic outdoor pre-schools do in terms of managing hand hygiene (believe it or not).

These are pre-schools who have no fixed site but walk and visit a variety of different sites during the course of a week. The pre-schools need to operate 5 days per week. If you know of any such pre-school anywhere in the world, please let me know. They can be state run, private, playgroup but must operate daily.

Many many thanks!

Thanks for helping us stay updated! Those of us that made it to Outdoor Nation participated in the biggest youth listening session. I have a group heading to the Nebraska listening session. I love what is going on!

I'm headed out there and there are about 10 other Natural Leaders joining the bigger group of 500 youth that will be in NYC for the Outdoor Nation Summit. It looks like it will be a great event!

Events on the couple of days leading up to and following Natural Leaders Day will be honored as Natural Leaders Day events. We understand that people may have had prior commitments because of Easter. Also, exploring the outdoors with Easter eggs and family is one of the best ways to do it!
