An opportunity for your child to find out things for themselves through encouragement, a chance to play outside of the classroom and to build on their resilience and resourcefulness. It allows them to develop their imagination and initiative to problem solve as well as tackling emotional intelligence and teamwork, along with risk-taking and self-management
