We endeavour to be outside every day, trips to the park are common. We like to use nature and the world around us as our main inspiration, we love beach combing and playing in the woods. You may have seen us around in our orange high vis jackets.
We have an 8 seater vehicle and take the children on outings further afield such as farms, museums and nature reserves.
We have many adventures at home too. We love art and messy play. We make playdough and dens. We do cooking and baking activities regularly and gardening too. We often have projects ongoing like watching caterpillars cocoon and turn to butterflies, or observing frogspawn.
We encourage learning and development in fun ways. We focus on fine motor skills with cutting and sticking and playing with pipe cleaners. We learn to share and take turns with ball games and obstacle courses. We play memory games and we tell stories, dance and sing. We make the effort to prepare pre-schoolers for the next stage by teaching name writing and number work by playing games and having fun.
The biggest adventure we have at Hippy Kids is enjoying each other’s company and watching the children grow. We truly believe in our ‘home from home’ environment and allowing the children to learn from each other like a big family.
