Sprouts Classes (mixed-age, 3s and 4s)
Rosie Morris, Lead Teacher – Sprouts
I am a nature enthusiast and believe children grow best in an environment where they can connect to their world, peers and grown ups in a natural setting.
I strive to create a safe space where they are encouraged in every way to explore and learn at their leisure while building a foundation of friendships with those they share their experiences with! Learn more about Rosie here.
