Welcome to the Environmental Education Service based at Dare Valley Country Park.
Educational ProgrammesThe Environmental Education Team at Dare Valley has always prided itself in the delivery of quality education programmes that meet the needs of schools.
We offer a range of half and full-day programmes linked to the new "Framework for Children's Learning for 3-7 year olds in Wales" (Foundation Phase) and the new Key Stage 2 National Curriculum. All programmes contribute to section 1, "Developing thinking across the curriculum" and section 2, "Developing communication across the curriculum", of the "Skills Framework for 3-19 year-olds in Wales". All programmes have strong links with the "Personal and Social Education Framework for 7-19-year-olds in Wales".
We use a range of games, activities and role-play to bring education to life, stimulate interest and inspire! A number of programmes are offered from Glyncornel Local Nature Reserve, Llwynypia and Darran Park, Ferndale.
Foundation Phase and KS1 programmes in brief
Key Stage 2 Programmes in Brief
All on-site programmes begin with introductory games and activities under the painted canvas roof of our outdoor classroom. We also have a dedicated classroom where we can eat packed lunches in poor weather.
We are able to provide transport at a reasonable cost to RCT schools, for up to 30 children plus 2 staff (up to 28 children if under 9, plus 4 adults) to and from school and for off-site excursions.
The service is well resourced with a wide range of scientific field studies equipment. We can also provide full waterproofs and wellies upon request.
