We want to create an every lasting impact on the next generation, by removing lives pressures, technologies and screens for just a few hours each week we are giving children the chance to simply 'play'. Unlike exiting groups we are nature led, bringing the outside in to our warm, dry hall we will offer a variety of nature led experiences to explore. The great outdoors is natures very own playground, a chance for children to learn without realising it. Offering a variety of nature led experiences on the grass we are encoring children outside, back to the playground we grew up in. Alongside this, the woodland area offers the opportunity of bug huts, story telling and nature exploring. We are a child-led play group asking parents to give their children the freedom to explore as they desire. With the latest research showing children spend less time outside than prisoners, also the huge impact is has on brain development, gross motor skills and life skills we need to make a change.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
After a lot of research, as children get older they have so many opportunities to connect with nature and play outside however, this opportunity is lacking for children under 5. Children has a huge desire to learn and the influences they learn at an early age will stick with them for life. We are currently living in a culture of ever growing fear, technology and screens but what impact is this really having on our children both now and for their future. We are keen to give the next generation the opportunities we had as children, playing outside, taking managed risks and learning through nature.
Steps to get it done:
We would like to see this grow over time and expand to neighbouring communities. You can say we are the stepping stone into cubs or beavers.
