Providing structured outdoor play and learning for 3 & 4 year olds that encourages curiosity, builds confidence, creates GIANT smiles and lasting friendships.



The Backyard EXPLORERS programme has been developed to allow pre-school aged children to enjoy our Gang activities. With guidance and supervision every session will be unique, exciting and fun.

The Explorers get wet, get dirty, build things and tear them down again. Their little fingers, their minds and their curiosity will be endlessly engaged. Together we will be AWESOME!

*The Explorers is the perfect pathway for your child to join The Backyard Gang once they turn 5.

Love, love, love what you do with the kids and how much they enjoy it! Thank you.

Red & Black Rain/No.8 Typhoon Signal

Programmes are automatically cancelled during Red and Black rain warnings or the hoisting of the No.8 Typhoon Signal. If programmes are in progress while a severe weather warning is hoisted, Backyard Roots staff will end the session, contact the Parents/Guardians and ensure the students are in the care of their parent or guardian.

Programmes scheduled to run while Red or Black rain storm warnings are hoisted will be automatically cancelled. Unfortunately no refunds or credit will be offered in this situation.

Where possible, scheduled programmes will resume after the lowering of weather warnings.

If signal is lowered at or after 4pm, all remaining programmes will be cancelled for that day.

Amber Rain Storm warning

Where possible, scheduled programmes will continue in Amber rain if it is safe to do so – updates will be sent via WhatsApp groups.

Typhoon signal 3

Assume we are ON, unless you hear otherwise.


Invoices will be sent out via email ahead of the start of term.  Payment can be made via Bank Transfer (HSBC) or Cheque.

We ask that full payment is settled prior to the start of the term in order to confirm your place.


Most communication is through dedicated WhatsApp groups where we will share the weekly overview along with a weekly video of your child’s adventures.

Cancellations and refunds

Refunds, credit letters or make up sessions will NOT be given for non-attendance of programmes/events for any reason.

Refunds, credit letters will be issued if a doctors note is provided to prove the student is unable to attend due to injury or prolonged illness.
