Free Range Urban Kids are a very different kind of nursery. With no indoor facilities, the forest school comes complete with an outdoor mud kitchen, real tools, and a full fire pit.
A nursery that unique comes with some unique challenges too. With her whole day occupied making sure every child gets the most out of the nature around them, Director Elizabeth Hassay was starting to get caught up in a bit of an admin crisis.
Who are Free Range Urban Kids?
Free Range Urban Kids is a forest school based in Hackney, London. After looking for an outdoor setting for her own children and finding nothing, Elizabeth and her business partner Haley decided it was time to change that. They now look after 40 children, introducing them to the forest school ethos in the very heart of London.
What will I learn?
You’ll learn all about what it take to run an outdoor setting in the heart of London, and why the forest school ethos is so powerful for child development.
What’s more, you’ll find out how Elizabeth found a software system that saved hours every day and finally helped her to get the admin pile-up under control.
What are they saying?
“Before Famly I found myself sitting up till 2 o’clock every morning. Not getting much sleep, and just trying to fit it all in. It was stressful, it was very stressful.”
“Since having Famly I now go to bed at 9:30, 10 o’clock every night. It’s made it possible because Famly is organised and it manages the nursery for me.”
Elizabeth Hassay, Director, Free Range Urban Kids.
