Why did we create Muddy Moons?
Claire, who has worked at Kingsbury for just over 2 years, created Muddy Moons to help with the children's behaviour, mental & physical wellbeing and to make use of our large outdoor space.
We looked into forest school training but it was an expense we just couldn't afford. So Claire, took it upon herself to create an incredible outdoor learning space to complement her skillset.
How the sessions work?
Claire spends some time setting up the garden space to complement what the children have been learning inside the building, she also gathers information from key persons to establish what her intentions can be and adapt the activity accordingly to suite all ages and stages. She then takes small groups outside into the environment to explore and discover. Claire uses all sorts of nature to lead her sessions. The sessions usually last between 15 minuets and half an hour, depending on the different age groups.
What sort of activities are involved?
ANYTHING!! That's, right, anything! Claire uses all sorts of resources to create fun and engaging activities to help the children learn and develop. We have a permanent mud kitchen and all the children love to get messy. In the past we have had tadpoles, watched caterpillars turn into butterflies, done taste tests and planted multiple fruit and vegetables but the list goes on, the possibilities are endless. Take a look through our social media to see more pictures of the fun!
What are our future plans?
We have so much more to offer with Muddy Moons. We want to branch out into our local community and make use of the local waterpark that is practically on our door step!
We also want to involve new and existing parents into their children's learning and get them to join in with a parent work shop, so we can show them that it is worth the hype!
If Muddy Moons sounds like your little one's cup of tea, enquire about a space today!
