Learning the Natural Way...

Muddy Education

The Countryside Education Centre

at Holdenby

The Centre...

Operating out of The Countryside Education Centre in the stunning Holdenby village Muddy Education activities allow visitors exclusive access to this historical estate. Using the Village Hall as a base with toilets, handwashing facilities and an indoor classroom, groups can venture out and explore the woodlands, tracks, fields, hedgerows and historic ponds.

Our Activities...

Activities for all ages are firmly rooted in a practical and hands-on approach to learning. Children are encouraged to explore the natural world, to ask questions and discover the answers. Activities for schools, nurseries and pre-schools are based on the relevant curriculum and link with topics being explored in schools and settings.

Learning the natural way...

At Muddy Education children learn with their whole bodies: walking, jumping, searching, smelling and feeling, all the time absorbing the world around them. It's a full on sensory experience creating a real depth of understanding. Our activities produce muddy children with smiling faces and brains that are switched on to nature!
