About The Beehive

About The Beehive

The clubs aim is to continue education through play for all pupils, while creating a safe, supportive, fun and happy environment. 

We aim to deliver clubs based on the playwork principles which recognise that play is a biological need and is essential for healthy development.

As playworkers we get to know your children and support them in creating a space where they can play. We try to anticipate their needs and provide the opportunities for them to extend their play, perhaps in ways they would not be able to do elsewhere.

Our values

As playworkers we regard play as something which is freely chosen.

In other words we accept that children are the experts on play and as much as possible we allow them to follow their own instincts and develop their ideas in their own way and for their own reasons.

The right to play is the child’s first claim on the community. Play is nature’s training for life. No community can infringe that right without doing enduring harm to the minds and bodies of its citizens.

(David Lloyd George 1925)
