Our Mini Farmers programme is aimed at our Pre-Schoolers, who rotate in groups to spend a week immersed on the farm.
During their designated week, children are based in the Mini Farmers barn, which is still safe and secure like the nursery building, however, because of its location provides the perfect opportunity for children to be enveloped in farm life and experience more natural learning opportunities.
The children will spend the majority of their time on the farm having enriched experiences that they can then expand upon back at the barn, with the support of experienced enthusiastic practitioners. We want children to be super excited about Mini Farmers and look forward to this alternative learning experience.
Keyworkers are still part of this process to ensure your child feels secure and confident, however, there will be additional practitioners who continually work in Mini Farmers.
These additional members of the Mini Farmers team have the experience and knowledge to fully immerse children in the project.
We also use farm staff and actual farmers to provide knowledge for your child. They not only learn about the farmers work at first hand but helps support your child’s development in making new relationships and learning about different people.
