About the employer

Brambles Rushall is set in seven beautiful acres of Wiltshire woodland. At Brambles we take inspiration from Forest School ethos where we passionately believe children learn and thrive from being surrounded by nature’s abundance. The natural environment at Brambles plays an important role by sparking wonder and curiosity. Natural open ended resources promote imagination encouraging children to be creative. Children explore the seasons and we embrace the British weather as a learning opportunity. At Brambles the practitioners and children work side by side; Practitioners value the child’s thinking and include their interests, improvisations and invitations to play. Practitioners engage and extend children’s learning by modelling, encouraging and exploring children’s interests. At Brambles we believe that helping children understand big emotions is important. We create a safe environment with understanding adults in which they learn strategies that help them become resilient, caring adults.
