These unique sessions combine elements of team building with play theory and thought provoking practical activities as well as up to date research on brain development in children.

More Feedback from Inset Days


“Thought provoking and inspiring. I cannot stress enough how much of a game changer this training day has been. Fantastic!”


“The Inset day was truly inspiring. All 50 staff were actively engaged and enthusiastic from the start of the day to the finish. The trainer delivered the perfect balance of theory and practical activities.”


“A great way to start off a new term – full of fun and very educational. I didn’t think I would enjoy the whole staff interaction as I am a little reserved. However it exceeded my expectations and I thoroughly enjoyed the session.. Thank you!”


 “I feel that I have a new perspective on the value of play for my own children at home and the children in school. I shall definitely be encouraging all aspects of play in a more relaxed and spontaneous way. Forget the mess – think of the value of it!”


 “Really enjoyable session. Great ideas and inspiration for school. Most enjoyable, inspiring team session. Lots of ideas of play to stimulate children.”


“Really enjoyed the practical activities (as did everyone) and that more than anything how important play is. I think it has made me consider how vital it is to inspire creativity and imagination in my KS2 pupils. It has provided new ideas that can be used inside and outside the classroom. We take “play” for granted but Ben has reminded us that many more children today don’t have the same opportunities as we had.”
