Get Kids Out Learning!
Children love being outdoors – learning through play and being inspired to explore the amazing world around them. But with the summer holidays coming up it’s easy for kids to quickly become bored – and for parents to worry about keeping them engaged with learning.
In fact, a recent study found that during the summer holidays, with no school classes to attend, children will on average lose 1.8 months worth of learning progress!
However, those who remained in an environment conducive to learning over the summer months better maintained their abilities to learn and understand new concepts – enabling them to learn more, learn faster and be prepared for the return to school in September.
Hoghton Tower are supporting the Tutora initiative this summer. At Tutora, they know the value of keeping children busy learning over the summer. That’s why they have started our ‘Get Kids Out Learning!’ campaign.
Get Kids Out Learning is an easy way for families to find fun days out local to them, but which still provide great learning and educational opportunities for the kids. The website pulls together all of the best educational venues across the UK and allows parents to search for them by region to quickly see all the information they need to plan a great day out!
Through Get Kids Out Learning, we’re encouraging more families to drop the smartphone, step away from the laptop and head outside to create learning experiences, memorable for years to come.
