Play. Learn. Create.

Make memories together!

Welcome to Love Outdoor Learning

We help children grow, develop and learn whilst they connect with their natural environment.

Our small team of 3 has over 30 years’ experience working within education and a wealth of training and knowledge developed within the outdoor environment. They understand how to create exciting and interesting sessions that will help children grow, learn and develop.

We love working with both families and educational settings, whether that is schools, clubs or with other activity providers. This allows us to utilise our expertise to support children in every area of their lives.

“When I think of my youth, I remember being outside, playing and exploring. It taught me a wealth of skills I still use today. I aim to give your child the same opportunities.”

Carol Murdoch,
Founder of Love Outdoor Learning

Info For Parents

Our families programme works with children of all ages. Our little ones enjoy stories, play sessions and precious time for families together. Our older children benefit from our 5 level progressions in outdoor learning programme. Here they learn safe tool use, fires, ecology, develop sustainable attitudes and more. We also have our wonderful learning packs, designed to support families with a range of ages, they provide fun activities with ideas on how they are easily adapted for each family.

Info For Educators

At the heart of everything we do is education. Our training programmes, both in house and within your own settings, are designed to equip teachers with the training and knowledge to confidently enhance their delivery of curriculum based outdoor learning with every age and stage. We create courses and days to suit your individual needs, no two settings are the same and training should reflect that.


I really like the groups for 2-5year olds as parents are involved. So many other classes are just drop of and collect from 3 years onwards and I really miss being part of Quentin’s development and seeing how he evolves.
I love this page! I am a primary teacher who likes a classroom and to teach kids from P4 up. The activities we’ve done have been the most fun and engaging learning we’ve done during lockdown. Logan loves being outside and working with natural resources. It’s helped his imagination, counting, mark making, creativity, motor skills and speech. I’d 100% recommend Love Outdoor Learning.
Carol and Ashleigh are just amazing. My boys love them both and every activity is focused on their development as well as using nature. Absolutely fabulous.

The children had a fantastic experience. The session developed lots of different skills when den building e.g. cooperation, teamwork, problem solving, observation, engineering, listening and talking. We would love to have you back!

CLD Youth Services have successfully worked in partnership with Love Outdoor learning for several years and have found the whole process from booking, organising, delivery and evaluating sessions very efficient, welcoming and knowledgeable. Carol and staff have great approach with young people and are very responsive to needs of young people and to the environment in which workshops are delivered.
