Children Who Can works with primary schools and nurseries to provide engaging and exciting outdoor learning experiences for children aged two to twelve. Our children’s workshops help primary-age children to learn alongside others, think for themselves and make healthy choices.
Our Tailor-Made Children’s Workshops
Our bespoke children’s workshops are designed by highly experienced educators to engage children in exciting and memorable experiences. During the course of the workshop, children will use their creativity and problem-solving skills to create exciting outcomes, learn new skills or master existing ones and make new friends as they work together with other children in our wonderful woodland setting.
Children Who Can Workshops Are Designed to Help Children:
- Problem-Solve – Our child-led outdoor learning activities encourage children to think for themselves and solve problems posed to them in order to enjoy a successful outcome, whether that’s building a birdhouse, preparing a tasty meal to take home or creating a delightful decoration to give to their parents.
- Create Exciting Outcomes – A Children Who Can Workshop puts the children firmly at the heart of the activities. They create their own learning and discover the delight of a successful outcome from their own effort.
- Prepare Healthy Food Using Vegetables – We teach children useful cooking and food preparation skills so they can understand the nutritional value and delicious enjoyment of eating fresh-from-the-ground veg they’ve picked with their own hands. Once the food is prepared, the children take it home to share with their families.
- Make New Friends – Children will be collaborating and working together in our beautiful outdoor setting, which naturally encourages friendships to develop and gives each child the chance to improve their social, listening and emotional management skills.
- Develop Life Skills – Our workshops for children are designed to help children from two to twelve develop essential life skills, from communication, relationship building and self-reliance to speaking and practical hands-on life skills like cooking, food preparation and survival.
- Build Confidence and Self-Esteem – As children start to create their own learning experiences, take responsibility for the outcome of their actions and develop strategies to ensure successful completion of tasks, they naturally grow in confidence and self-esteem, which is further enhanced by our supportive, encouraging approach to development.
- Harness Leadership Skills – Working in groups to problem-solve and create successful outcomes, children will naturally learn to delegate, take ownership, communicate and support one another, developing their leadership skills in a supportive, exciting and dynamic setting.
Children Who Can workshops are based on the CWC Way, our innovative and highly rated approach to the primary curriculum. Our problem-solving-based approach to teaching and learning is unlike any other – the teacher provides imaginative opportunities in the form of missions, challenges and problems, and the children lead their own learning experience. Children develop ownership of their enterprise through collaborative planning, designed to investigate and solve the mission, while the teacher facilitates work on real-life situations and enterprise.
As well as our children’s workshops, we also provide a wide range of Off-Grid experiences and school holiday activities in and around Yorkshire.
