Scalchemy have a range of early years training courses to support play work and out of school provisions.

Out-of-school settings who offer services before and after school and during school holidays for children whose ages may range from 4 to 11 years. The focus for these services are to provide a fun and relaxed environment where children are able to socialise, make decisions and solve problems in partnership with their peers.

The ethos is based on the Charter for Children’s Play (Play England) and the Play Principles;

  • These Principles establish the professional and ethical framework for playwork
  • They describe what is unique about play and playwork, and provide the playwork perspective for working with children and young people.
  • They are based on the recognition that children and young people’s capacity for positive development will be enhanced if given access to the broadest range of environments and play opportunities.

Scalchemy out-of-school training embraces these principles and supports practitioners in providing exciting play opportunities. Training can be offered at a range of times to suit your settings needs.
