Exclusive for Portsmouth Scouts - one of only 3 Districts in the UK to be running this at the moment!!

We want to reach young people who could benefit most from Scouts. Research suggests that the earlier a young person accesses non-formal education, the more positive the impact on their prospects.

The Scouts programme for four and five year olds is based on the Scouts Method, but also informed by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework.

These tried-and-tested principles encourage children to learn by playing, exploring and being active, and through creative and critical thinking both indoors and outside – very similar to Scouts but with less of the adventure, outdoor activity and responsibility than we provide. We support young people’s wellbeing and sense of community; inspire adventure, leadership and citizenship; and help to develop their skills of life.
Each meeting for four and five year olds has three key principles:

  1. Storytelling
  2. Routines set for comfort and learning
  3. A focus on participation, play, exploration and independence
