- Manage their emotions
- Understand others’ emotions
- Concentrate at home, nursery or school
- Solve simple problems for themselves
- Make decisions with confidence
What will I learn?
In less than an hour, you will learn:
1) Three powerful techniques that will instantly ignite children’s imaginations
2) How to deliver our Adventure Plans
3) How our adventures develop children’s key skills
What happens in an ‘adventure’?
In each adventure, children play a game that takes place in a different imaginary world – in the jungle or outer space, at the farm or on the bottom of the ocean for example, and our easy-to-follow Adventure Plans will guide you every step of the way.
How long does each adventure last?
Each adventure is designed to last around 20 minutes but everyone is different so some children may want to spend longer playing and for others, 10 – 15 minutes will be just right.
What’s the recommended number of children?
The is no set recommended number. Space permitting, you can take large groups of up to 30 children on our adventures, and even a single child will benefit from playing with their favourite adult!
