Smartkidz Summer Playscheme

Smartkidz' ethos is built around the PARS model of playwork with elements of the forest school ethos also ingrained.

We look at how adventure playgrounds have run in the past, how they run now and how we can bring an adventurous environment to our school settings. With a big push on

outdoor play, active play, loose parts and risk in play, which create the perfect foundations for a child led play experience for the children.

Our staff are trained in how and when to intervene with children's play and use key

methods and techniques to keep play flow at its optimum.

We have devised our own play quality assurance document to ensure all of our settings are meeting our ethos and the necessary requirements to create a fantastic experience for

children within our care. For more information on Smartkidz Play and Learn then please visit our website
