Get the Bairns Oot! - Nordic Outdoor Kindergartens in Scotland

  • Augustine United Church 41 George IV Bridge Edinburgh, Scotland, EH1 1EL United Kingdom (map)

Supported by the Scottish Government

Is Scotland set to follow Norway with a push for outdoor kindergartens? And if so, how do they work? In Arctic Tromso, Turid Boholm set up the Bukkespranget Barnehage (literally 'child garden') with support from local parents. Children learn, play and eat outdoors, even in the cold, dark Arctic winter. She will describe how it's done, how parents are brought on board and how children benefit

The event will be chaired by Lesley Riddoch, writer and broadcaster and author of Blossom: What Scotland Needs to Flourish

Following the event attendees are welcome to join at the George IV Bar, just along from the church, for drinks and food.

Admission to this event is free and all are welcome. For tickets, please visit
