The thinking behind Out2Play is very simple: to deliver free, open-to-everyone play activity for children across the Isle of Man during school holidays. It takes place in the children's local environment, as well as further afield in Manx glens, parks and beaches.
It's about getting active
Out2Play is aimed at children from ages four to eleven and the playscheme runs during all the school holidays, with the exception of those over Christmas. There are two play sessions each day and they take place in a wide range of locations around the Island, so there's sure to be one near you.
The sessions include a host of different activities, with the children encouraged to take part in as many activities as they can, and it doesn't matter if they get wet and muddy while they're taking part...that's all part of the fun. Taking part in play that helps with physical and social development doesn't have to be unexciting, and with Out2lay we make sure that it's always designed for every child to take part in and enjoy.
Developing skills, having fun
Out2Play is a great way for children to learn about making friends and the social skills which make that possible, and it is also a great way for them to develop their own physical and motor skills too. It's energetic fun that encourages activity and the benefits of outdoor play. And it's popular too: around 5,000 children take part in Out2Play activities every year.
