Creating environments where children can play, grow STRONG and build knowledge for their future
We are a team of professionals dedicated to putting something different on the table - a physical activity developed entirely from a child’s perspective. This means children can build up the knowledge and skills they need for their future, in their way.
'YOUNG ROOTS' and 'ROOTS EXPLORE' (ages 2 - 16) are exciting obstacle course challenges that release the 'happy chemicals' in children as they feel the motivation to beat their own time in a non-competitive and natural environment. Endorphins, serotonin and dopamine fly high as children are kept busy for an hour or much more.
Younger children, especially, become absorbed in the environment as they create imaginative stories in their minds, exploring and inventing new ideas along the route. As one child said, "can we have this in our world mum". They are in a world they can naturally relate to, but, are not often able to connect with, with so many distractions and enforced actions being the norm from an early age.
ROOT GROUPS, ROOT CARE & PHENOMENON-BASED LEARNING (ages 2 -16 and separate parent groups) Children love Roots because learning their way is so much fun. We advocate the use of ROOTS to inspire motivated learning, promote positive peer relationships, adopt resilience when taking on new challenges and find positive focus when faced with adversity.
MULTIPLE-INTELLIGENCES: In a group setting the purpose of the obstacle course challenge in the first instance is to prepare children mentally for the topical challenges that follow. The 'challenge rooms' are looked after by their guardians, 'The Intellects', Logi, Lingu, Spatia, Cordino, Musica, Inter-tra and Natura. 'Pedago' communicates, on behalf of the Intellects, with humankind.
A PRESCRIPTION FOR HAPPINESS: Roots responds to modern-day issues before they occur - an upstream intervention for children wanting or needing to feel mentally stronger so they are more able to cope with life. Understanding, through science, what, where, when, how, who with and why a person engages in Roots explains why it works.
ROOT FORCE!!! Let the force be with them for this is the ultimate competitive family challenge for teams of 2 or 3. It's all about being able to complete the challenge! The challenge dates on the first Sunday of September, December, March and June. Commences December 2nd, 2018.
We're rooting for you!
Back to our roots
All we do is scientifically proven phenomenon based child-centred learning. From observing children play traditional sports over ten years, we decided to throw away the rule books and start again with the child's needs at the centre of our decision-making.
Did you know, we can even ‘up ROOTS’ and set up our parcours obstacle training course in your school / gym / village hall ......you get the idea.
Tucked away in the Forest of Dean is where you will find ROOTS.
