Brecon Beacons Park Play, Our Way
Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs is an umbrella organisation supporting independent clubs which offer childcare before and after school and during school holidays. Between them the clubs cater for more than 40,000 children aged 3 -14.
As well as our business support role, Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs offers training and resources to improve the quality of activities in the club and the skills of the Playworkers.
One of the favourite resources is the Nature Zone pack which has been in use for several years. Nature Zone is a resource pack that provides practical ideas for Playworkers to use in their clubs. It is all about exploring the environment through play, with things to do and make both indoors and out.
The bilingual packs can be used by both adults and children and provide a basis for ideas around different themes and seasons. The packs are easy to follow and allow children to learn more about the world in which they live whilst having fun. The packs can be added to and children can extend ideas further by exploring, researching and talking to friends, families and their community.
Thanks to generous grant funding from The Ernest Cook Trust, The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority and The Brecon Beacons Trust Limited. Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs has been able to expand and update the Nature Zone pack.
The additional activities have been developed in conjunction with The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority and reflect the type of activities that can be undertaken in the National Park.
