Dr. Claire Warden's Mindstretchers Academy

Inspirational Online Professional Development For Educators

International research suggests that well trained professionals make a real difference to children's learning. Enhance your practice through professional development to benefit children and families. We're inviting you to join Dr. Claire Warden on a learning journey that will be full of inspirational research and practice in the field of inquiry-based learning and Nature Pedagogy.


Dr. Claire Warden’s approach to nature kindergartens has earned her international recognition as a pioneer in educational thinking. She is one of the world’s leading consultants and writers on the use of consultative methods in education. She also works internationally under her own name and has been widely acknowledged for her expertise.

Mindstretchers Academy is a training consultancy based in Perthshire, Scotland. They believe that children should have access to natural learning resources and that they should be able to lead their own learning. Through their training and resources they share this philosophy with anyone working with children. All of their training can be applied to children from birth to 11. Above all else, Mindstretchers want to see children receiving the best education possible in a multi-sensory environment. We hope to share their positive attitude.

Very informative and motivating with great practical examples of how to put the training into practice. Claire is so very inspiring and engaging but relatable too.  We're ready to reinvigorate our classrooms for next term!

Claire’s online training is wonderful! Our team is enthused and invigorated! We had been using Floorbooks with limited knowledge and now have a clear direction to move forward. I’d highly recommend this training and look forward to more inquiry-based learning with our children.
