FUNdamental Play Training

FUNdamental Play Training is an activity based training day for people who work with Early Years children in the outdoors.

At OutLET: Play Resource, we know that the best form of play is free-flow, child led, unadulterated play……… But we also know that sometimes children need you to SPARK their imagination…

Join us for a day in the woods for the first of our ‘FUNdamental Training Days’, where we will be taking play ‘back to basics’ by exploring outdoor activities that only require very basic resources.
Let’s see what we can do with…….
Sticks and String

One of the great things about this course is that once complete – you won’t have the big spend on new resources, or kit!

You can just get out there and PLAY!!

We will cover:
An introduction to Play and why it’s important!
Minimum of 12 activities with Sticks and String.
How this fits in the Curriculum for Excellence

Just completed an absolutely fabulous weekend of fire and tools training with outlet. Susan is so knowledgable and explains things in such an easy to understand way giving you the confidence to work with fire and tools in your setting. In addition we made mallets, cooked rolls and sausage and put up some tarps! 😊 A highly recommend course.

Had a fantastic weekend at the fire and tools training taken by Susan. The training teaches you how to safely use fire and tools with children, all the while being way too much fun to even call it training! Creating my own mallet, and my beloved little mushroom, were the highlights of my weekend. Can’t wait to share my new skills with my colleagues and especially our children. Would highly recommend to anyone
