We employ people with a zest for life, a love of the outdoors and a passion for the importance of kids playing and being outside. We offer an incomparably beautiful setting for your day's work. We guarantee you'll be working with incredibly friendly and like-minded colleagues. We'll even give you a paid day off when it's your birthday.
We welcome applications from practitioners qualified to NVQ Level 3 or above in Early Years childcare but also accept applications from non-qualified candidates who share our desire to reconnect children with nature. Any Forest School qualifications or experience are a bonus but not a requirement.

VOlunteering and work experience
Little Foxes Forest School offer student placements and volunteer opportunities all year round. You can play, explore and learn as part of a great team with us for a minimum of 1 week. You don’t need to have any previous qualification or experience. We are hoping for students that would like to develop their knowledge in outdoor education and volunteers who would like to get a first glimpse of teaching in a forest nursery. All our work experiences are unpaid. You will need to provide an up to date DBS check or take care of the cost if you would prefer us to run a check for you. Please do get in touch if have any questions.
If you would like to apply, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a volunteer application form.
The best teachers are those who tell you where to look, but don't tell you what to see.
