The Quiet Child & The Boisterous Child – space for both

The Quiet Child & The Boisterous Child – space for both

The Outdoors Project gives children a chance to be leaders, investigators, become curious about the world around them and learn something new at almost every session.

Every child is unique. We can look at their characteristics and as parents are often guilty of pigeonholing them.  How many times have you been in the park or playground and had another parent comment about their child “He’s a quiet boy, isn’t he” or even worse when someone makes a call about your child “typical boisterous boy today at school.”  There is nothing wrong with this, some children can be very inclined to bounce around a lot and chat, whereas others prefer their own company or small groups.  There is a place at The Outdoors Project for all children, shy, confident, energetic, gentle, full of gusto.  

Why being in nature helps our mental health

Why being in nature helps our mental health

We spend our days outdoors with children, playing, running, laughing, working together.  To us, the benefits of being outdoors are obvious; we see and feel them in every session. All of our sessions are held in green spaces,  a mix of playgrounds, parks and fields. The colder months involve shorter days and often the time spent indoors added in with the darkness can cause our mental health to dip. Of course, this can occur at any time of year but the motivation to get up, wrap up and head outside when we are feeling tired and a little flat can be hard to find.

The Outdoors Project West Sussex Franchise End of Year Round-Up

We've had an incredible 2019 here The Outdoors Project West Sussex and we wanted to fill you in on all the happenings, look back to share some of our achievements and give you a glimpse into what to expect in 2020.  We're very proud of how far we've come and super excited for what's in store next year!  To start with, we've been doing some number-crunching and thanks to the support of all the wonderful parents, guardians and carers and most importantly, our fantastic kids that attend the clubs, workshops and activity days, these are a few of the headline accomplishments for 2019...

Join our Tribe.  How you can run your own franchise.

Join our Tribe. How you can run your own franchise.

Friends and parents often say that they would love to have a job like ours.  We spend a huge proportion of our working life outdoors in the fresh air, laughing, exercising and playing. How many adults can add those activities to their job description! Granted, there is a huge amount of planning that goes into the clubs, to ensure that children have the most fun possible, whilst in a free range and safe outdoor environment but the good news is that we have done most of the hard work for you, meaning that were you to run your own Outdoors Project Franchise, you would be ready to go almost immediately.

Won't The Kids Get Cold ??

Won't The Kids Get Cold ??

We get asked this question a lot by parents; especially when the weather takes a turn for the worse.  “My son moans about the cold,” or “she hates it when it rains.”  Of course, our clubs do not go without the odd moan from kids, but often the grumbles are about losing the Nerf battle or not being able to continue the games they are playing.  The old saying “there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing” is a good one but we see children running around in t-shirts when adults are walking by in woolly hats.
