Get Kids Out Learning!
Posted on by Website Administrator
We're delighted to be part of Tutora's 'Get Kids Out Learning!' campaign this summer.
The summer holidays are a great time to inspire children by visiting local educational places. Children love learning and they love getting out and about, so why not combine the two with an educational visit to a local attraction?!
About ‘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.
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.
‘Our aim is to help as many families as possible and make sure that every child is able to achieve their best in school! Seeing the regression which can happen over the Summer holidays, we wanted to help tackle the problem - what better way than to get children visiting the wonderful educational venues we have across the UK?!’ Scott Woodley (CEO and Co-Founder of Tutora)
