 Children’s Rights: Participation in Practice

A child-friendly environment is one where children feel safe and comfortable and where they are encouraged to express themselves freely. The friendlier the environment, the more readily children will feel able to contribute and the more they will gain from their involvement. Offering children a choice is the first step to ensure a child’s right to participation is honoured. Children have a right to play. Play and recreation is vital to children’s development, providing the opportunity for enjoyment, exploration, refuge, and participation in cultural and social events. Play is the very centre of children’s spontaneous urge for development and should be understood as crucial to the quality of children’s engagement with their world.

Little Rookies has been brilliant for my two boys. They love going there and feel totally happy and secure with Caroline, Tracey and Laura, which makes it much easier for me to go to work knowing they are having fun. They seem to really enjoy the noise and bustle and have lots of fun with the other kids. The activities are amazing and I often struggle to get them away when I come to collect them.

We have been using the Breakfast Club as I have to be at work for 9am. My daughter is always happy to go to Little Rookies and loves going along to school with her mates.
— Breakfast Club Dad
I only get my work rota a couple of weeks in advance so being able to book my children in for different days and half days has been ace - thanks Team Rookies!
— Holiday Club and After School Club Mum
As a Teacher I actually get all holidays off with my wee girl but being able to send her to the Holiday Club for a couple of days during the holidays is great. It means she gets to see all her wee friends and Caroline and the team do amazing arty crafts with her that there is no way I would do at home, so we are both happy
