INSIDE OUT offers a range of services for young children (ages 7-11) and their teachers.

Magical Days Out

The Magical Day Out is all about planting seeds and lighting sparks.
It is a day of happiness and hands-on learning based on the 5 Keys to Happiness.

  • Catalysts for future development back at school
  • One day workshops
  • Weekly term-time visit to Checkendon Equestrian Centre for groups of 10 children
  • Day-long – 9:30am – 3:00pm
  • Theme-based programme
  • Blend of experiential activities around animals, nature, art and wellbeing give children the opportunity to:

Ride and care for a horse
Explore and discover their natural world
Gain an appreciation for the environment and their role in it
Create nature art
Practice mindful breathing and sensing

  • Engaging resources
  • Easily integrated into the curriculum
  • Creative and fun
