Looking to deliver outdoor learning but need some help?

If you’re looking for training or support to build confidence in this area, looking for a school trip you can relax on knowing there are experts leading the programme or access to new activities focusing on outdoor skills - please get in touch!
Why The Ecology Centre?
Our award winning education programme has always been at the heart of The Ecology Centre. Over the years we have worked with hundreds of children in schools, local green spaces and at The Ecology Centre.
Our approach is based on the values of compassion, environment and equity. We use nature as our teacher and aim to provide inclusive, child centred, fun and informative sessions. There are lots of ways we support outdoor learning in schools and the community - we provide CPD, inspirational learning outdoors and can take topics and make them come alive in local woodlands. We believe our work is most transformational in smaller groups lasting a number of weeks.
There are so many benefits of outdoor learning. Time in nature can help our children feel happier, more focused and engaged with learning as well as having a positive impact on their physical health. The evidence that we all need time in nature is so clear that doctors in Scotland have now started prescribing it!
The Education team won "Best School Partnership" award at the Fife Business Awards in 2019, through working with Pathhead Primary School. Call us on 01592 891567 to discuss how we can work together
