Stramash Outdoor Nurseries has grown to be Scotland’s largest fully outdoor pre-school
nursery provider. In our four nurseries we provide nearly 300 children with enriching
learning environments and we are firmly aligned to the Scottish Government’s key
objectives around health, wellbeing and the environment. We are a trading organisation
that is focused on our families, operates sustainably and has strong ambition to grow our
service across Scotland.

We are seeking new board members to strengthen our mix of skills and breadth of
experience – we would especially welcome anyone with a property background. While board roles are non-remunerated, we offer the chance to contribute to the wellbeing of children, grow an award-winning organisation and participate in lively and engaging board discussions.

Enthusiasm and a passion for the outdoors is a must as is an understanding of the
importance of Early Years to the foundations of an individual and to society. You may be
from a diverse range of professional backgrounds including education, property,
entrepreneurial & business growth, legal, medical or many others. A non-executive role with
us will bring new perspectives and help deepen skills.

We care a whole lot about the power of nature and place-based learning. We also value
supportive and meaningful relationships and interactions, with caring people in enriching
environments. ‘The outdoors’ is where we ‘do what we do’, but it’s our ethos, values and
people that really deliver the magic of what we do.
