Professional recommendations for Dan

Dan and I worked at the same Nursery for over eight years. He has ensured a very professional relationship with staff, parents and children, all of whom he has built a very strong rapport with. He takes his responsibilities very seriously yet has a great sense of humour which allows the day to go with a swing. He has a strong sense of team spirit and is a very easy-going person.- Pat Fortin: Early Years Teacher
Dan led this discovery level John Muir Award with passion and enthusiasm and careful planning. He met the participants where they were at, and deepened their awareness of the natural world through fun, reflection and collaborative activities. I look forward to working with Dan again on his next John Muir Award project.- Shona Fernyhough: Environmental playworker
