Ella is an experienced Early years practiser (Level 3 in Childcare and education) and outstanding Forest School Leader.

“ I feel very strongly about children having the chance to experience learning outdoors. Forest School promotes learning through risk taking and imaginative play and allows for freedom of expression in a natural environment. The woodland setting has so much to offer children with regards to their holistic experience. Our outdoor preschool will allow children opportunities to engage in a magical learning adventure with our carefully chosen activities and flexible child led approaches’.

“I have a lifelong passion for the natural world and a background in studying Ecology, Sustainability and Food Growing at Degree - soon to be MA level. Through my work in a Bristol Children's Centre, I have had the opportunity to run allotment projects and lead outdoor sessions, and I cannot wait to share more time outdoors.” 

I am very happy to be able to continue exploring my passion for outdoor education within my role at Out There. I believe that spending time outdoors is the most effective way for children to develop confidence and independence. It encourages them to become risk aware rather than risk averse whilst allowing them to develop in all areas of the Early Years Foundation stage. I am excited to continue my outdoor journey whilst helping to provide excellent care and education with the rest of the team at Out There. 


I have recently achieved a Bachelor of Honours Degree in Early Childhood where my independent research focused on outdoor education and the role of the natural environment in young children’s learning and development. I am very excited to explore this interest and passion further within my role at Out There Kindergarten. I am trained in safeguarding children and Level Three Paediatric First Aid. I believe that the ever changing natural environment provides invaluable and exciting opportunities for children to flourish throughout all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
