Equal access and quality in early education require improving educational practices through mechanisms to support the professional development of human resources and approach the education of change as response to the needs of the harmonious development of the child's personality. Here is the argument of the project "Outdoor education , a step forward" proposed by our kindergarten to rally to the European quality assurance policies by acquiring skills in teaching outdoor education , main resources to increase learning motivation . The project’s objectives aim at providing training in outdoor education for 7 teachers from Kindergarten no. 2, which will increase the interest of other teachers from our institution for these type of activities, encouraging interactive teaching in the next school years. Improving the educational offer by introducing outdoor activities in the next school years will optimize collaboration and relationship between kindergarten and family , by understanding the benefit that this kind of education will bring in the psycho-socio-emotional development of children. Target group consists of 7 teachers in the preprimary field from Kindergarten no. 2 out of 21 teachers, who are at the beginning of their teaching career and key persons from institution (working committees responsible for ensuring quality in education, trainers, methodists, responsible for teaching circle) which can actively support school management and can motivate colleagues to include in the curriculum new knowledge taught from training courses . The main project's activities are specially addressed to teachers’ staff and aimed on improving professional skills (methodology, didactic, pedagogy of outdoor education and interactive teaching). These activities will contribute to improve curriculum quality by implementing new acquisitions, will ensure the exchange of good practices among teachers and increase intercultural awareness and strengthen the European dimension for all educational actors. By implementing the project, expected outcomes will focus on increasing staff development opportunities from our kindergarten and from local teachers community , the flexibility of teachers to diversify teaching activities and educational offer, to increase motivation and satisfaction in the work of instruction and education. The implementation of the best practices and innovative pedagogical methods to create a modern teaching environment , an interactive and integrative space, will provide increased quality of education for children by conducting outdoor educational programs, ensuring the prestige of kindergarten default by the new educational approach. Impact of training courses will be visible both in the personal and professional participants’ level and to the institution as a whole , to parents and children too. Teachers will have the possibility to exchange their competences by improving teaching skills, by working with children, by collaboratively working with peers, improve their language and digital skills, will share methods, knowledge and practices learned to other teachers from our kindergarden, will disseminate the project’s results both locally and nationally. At the institutional level, empowerment through training courses will enable the implementation of new ideas, accessing new partnership projects and support, as trainers for new courses that have roots in such partnerships. Applying the knowledge gained in mobility, the impact is transferred and the preschoolers and their parents will change their attitude and behaviour towards the educational environment, creating a strong relationship between people, based on mutual support, enhance learning for children who have difficulty in meaning to become more motivated, much more capable. Personal development will give children the freedom of expression and speech given by outdoor education benefits totalising countless physical, emotional, mental ensuring the welfare of the individual and therefore part of the community. Support professionalization and retention of kindergarten’ teachers by providing access to current information resources, will highlight a number of long-term benefits: curriculum integration of new knowledge, monitoring and evaluation of the following new methods and techniques acquired from courses, supporting other teachers interested in promoting similar challenges, thus developing socio-personal skills and relational abilities .
