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. Our programs are designed as an antidote to the fast paced technology filled world many children now inhabit. Any personal devices (phones, ipods etc) must be left at home.
The program will go ahead in all weather. Rain brings exciting opportunities for play and exploration and of course, shelter building! Playing in the outdoors also inevitably means getting dirty, and often getting a few scrapes and bruises too. The only thing that will bring us inside is a severe weather warning from the Metservice. In that case, to make sure that the FUN won't stop, we have the Boat Club booked overlooking the water.
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". For rainy days waterproof gear (jacket and pants) is compulsory for all children being dropped off.
Parent Helpers - A unique part of the Conscious Kids Programmes 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 actively involved in children's' play, then this could be the role for you.

Important ! To ensure our children get the best of our free play spaces and enjoy the Conscious Kids way of play, we require at least 12 children to attend per day, so please invite yours friends for the days of pure fun during the holidays!
