The Well-Being & Involvement Project was a collaborative initiative between Oxfordshire, Surrey, Learning through Landscapes(LTL), and Leuven University. This practitioner-led action research project aimed to explore use of the materials from Learning through Landscapes Early Years Toolkit and the well-being and involvement observation tools, developed by Professor Ferre Laevers and team from Leuven University, to support children’s learning and development by making improvements to the outdoor provision.
The starting point was to carry out observations of the children’s experience, their levels of well-being and involvement in the activities and environment already on offer. Then practitioners were supported to track children over the course of a year, and make changes to support their interests and projects outdoors. In her role as the link Early Years Regional Adviser for Surrey, Gail was invited to support the launch and final celebration of the partnership project between LTL and two Local Authorities, Oxfordshire and Surrey.
