Hi! My name is Claire and I’m the director of Douglas Tree Forest School. My background is in nursery management and I opened Douglas Tree to pursue my passion in outdoor learning. I live locally in Bebington, but spent my childhood growing up in Liverpool. My favourite part of what I do, is being able to observe the positive impact that our outdoor experiences have on children.
II have worked in Early Years childcare since 2004 and I have never looked back. I have worked as a Nursery Manager in a number of settings and I’m extremely interested in the lack of learning opportunities that children are provided with outdoors when the benefits are so great. I am trained in forest school and hold many qualifications, including a business management degree and the Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS).
Douglas Tree Forest School is a way for me to combine my passion for the outdoors with my experience and knowledge of early years. I look forward to meeting more of you as Douglas Tree grows.
