Welcome to Dandelion

Dandelion Education Ltd is a place where children grow and flourish, via exploration of the natural environment, under the skilled guidance and support of a team led by founders:  Hayley Room and Emma Harwood.

As Emma and Hayley sat drinking tea in 2013, under a flowering magnolia tree, they dreamt of a perfect learning environment for children.

This dream became Dandelion Education Ltd.
