Does your child love getting messy and expressing their creative? Do you shudder when you think of the mess? Do you struggle with coming up with ideas and the thought of buying and storing all the supplies? We have the answer. We provide fun, engaging and creative workshops for tiny tots and not so tiny tots. In a relaxed environment children will be free to make an arty mess and best of all WE clean up the mess.
8 Week program: 13, 20, 27, October, 3 , 10, 17, 24 November, 1, December
Each week we add in a DOSE of resilience. Our Toddler Art program is designed to explore and celebrate what makes these little ones unique through a playful and creative exploration of key strengths including curiosity, bravery, love of learning and kindness. We will support you to equip your child with a growth mindset through fun, art and play.
These sessions will support your child in developing their sense of identity as strong, confident and involved learners. Our program features hands-on activities with connections to the early years learning framework and positive psychology.
Connection – Child and special adult create together – research that has found that “Early childhood arts and cultural activities can significantly strengthen parent-child bonds and engage families in their children’s learning, providing a positive focus for shared experience and communication.” (Ipsos Mori (2009)
Confidence and self esteem is supported and encouraged as we identify your child’s strengths
