Developing Your Outdoor Provision

Learn the difference the outdoors can make!

Studies have found that three quarters of UK children spend less time outdoors than prison inmates! 

Such a shocking statistic that shows why you being able to provide a safe, stimulating outdoor environment is vital to a child's wellbeing.

Hi I am Hayley I set up Families In Sync to work with both families and childcare providers enriching children's lives. Outdoor play and learning is one of my passions and one which is always a sell out day on our professional development workshops.

With budgets tighter than ever and outdoor learning now so much more important, we seem to be fighting a loosing battle.

This is why I developed this course. Outdoor experiences increase children's confidence, promote problem-solving and develop social skills and co-operation.
