Professional recommendations for Dan
Having worked with Dan for several years it was a great opportunity when Dan asked if Exploring Nature Play (SW) would be interested in hosting him as a World of difference Vodafone Volunteer through NCB our project host. Dan is a well experienced early years provider, with a wealth of play knowledge, so both Play Torbay and Play England were delighted when NCB accepted the offer and we were all over the moon when WOD Vodafone offered Dan one of only 500 placements! Dan and I discussed what would be the focus and decided that the delivery of a John Muir Award Discovery award would be a great way forward. Dan’s preparation, planning and delivery of this project was amazing – the feedback from those who took part was understandably fantastic… Dan led the project with confidence, experience, and professionalism. Dan links the world of early years, play and environmental projects together seamlessly.. providing great opportunities for everyone to be involved in play. Dan’s next adventure will be supporting Play England – Explore Play Connect – In the City conference on 7th October – London .. I would highly recommend joining Dan and Sylvan adventures on their next exploration / adventure!- Jane Hembrow: Play Guru
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
