Child led play and PARS- Please note that all our activities are optional to the children. At no point will we make children take part in our activities. Children that do take part in our activities are free to change, adapt or stop at any point during the activity. With “riskier” activities, such as tool use and fire use activities, discussions would be had with the children in adapting or changing these.
