Collaborate. Experiment. Innovate.
Giving space and allowing those wonderful sparks of imagination to flourish is important for our children while they rest, rejuvenate and reset during the school holidays, and our dynamic outdoor sessions offer exactly that. Run by our experienced practitioners who are qualified in early years, primary school and forest school learning, our enriching activities range from den building, nature hunts, building obstacle courses and painting and creating with natural resources. We incorporate experiential learning with caring for local nature to help nurture and develop social, physical and cognitive skills that children can implement throughout their lives.
The 6 C’s
We also use Kathy Hirsch Pasek and Roberta Michnick Golinkoff’s ideas of The 6 C’s to deliver sessions.
How they self-regulate their input in group activities, whether they engage with their peers during tasks and how they understand, respond to and mould a situation.
How a child interacts with both their peers and the practitioners, how they engage and respond to ideas and how they articulate their thinking behind a decision.
How they use their knowledge to build upon previous experiences and engage with tasks, whether they connect with the activities.
How a child absorbs the information they are presented with and applies this to future activities, whether they are inquisitive and observing, how they analyse situations.
How they experiment with a variety of experiences and explore their surroundings, how they use their curiosity to fuel their interests, how they use materials and tools to scaffold their own imaginations.
How they grow their own mindset to pursue and achieve their goals, how they learn from errors and move on from them.
As Sergio Pellis, a researcher at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, said in an interview with NPR in 2014; “the experience of play changes the connections of the neurons at the front end of your brain”. We are ardent believers in outdoor play to help forge these neurotransmitter connections that are critical to a child’s development, come rain or shine – if they can do it in Scandinavia, we can do it here in South West London! After all, there is no such thing as bad weather – just bad clothing!
