To ensure our children get the best of our free play spaces and enjoy the Conscious Kids way of play, we require at least 10 children to attend, so please invite yours friends for 2 hours of pure fun!
Our CK After School Programmes are based on our hugely successful Nature School Holiday Programme. After a day at school, children have the opportunity to play freely in nature, extending on their learning and developing new skills and new friendships. All the same activities as the school holiday programme, in a smaller weekly dose!
Our programmes are designed as an antidote to the fast paced technology filled world our children now inhabit. A chance to unwind and play as their parents did, climbing trees, building huts, exploring and of course playing bullrush! The foundation of our programs is free play in a natural setting with as little assistance as possible from equipment and technology. We offer a chance for children to play as they like, for as long as they like, within a framework of respect for those around them and the environment. Extension opportunities will be available but only if the children genuinely want to participate. We provide basic equipment suitable to exploring the outdoors: ropes, tarpaulins, bungees, compass, magnifying glasses, knives (to be used with supervision) and some art equipment.
The program will go ahead in all weather. Rain brings exciting opportunities for play and exploration and of course shelter building! Good quality wet weather gear is very important. We wholeheartedly believe the famous quote “there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing”. Waterproof gear (jacket and pants) is compulsory for rainy days. Please visit our online store for great waterproof pants.
Parent Helpers - A unique part of the Conscious Kids Programme philosophy is that passionate parents make the very best supervisors. They have a vested interest in making sure the day is amazing for the children and they have the most experience caring for and managing children. If you are enthusiastic and positive about being in the outdoors in all weather conditions and genuinely enjoy being around children supporting independent play, then this could be the role for you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
