We are proud to inspire the nation's imagination with our core values

Have Fun

Ensure Quality

Engage Learning

Inspire Imagination

Nurture Creativity

Give Care

Have Fun

Fun is infectious and we provide shared fun experiences that help to bond and unite parents/carers with their child or children, as well as sharing experiences in a social group to help connect and develop friendships.

Ensure Quality

We are committed to consistently high standards in our sessions, products, professionalism, safety and trust. We believe in quality positive experiences that earn us the respect and recommendations with every relationship we nurture and build. For us, quality means the challenge of continuous improvement to help inspire imaginations and to support our communities and partners and all those who share this passion.

Engage Learning

Practical hands on learning opportunities provide fun ways to experiment, explore and discover. Helping each child and parent/carer to expand their thinking and value each moment.

Inspire Imagination

We do this by providing journeys of exploration and discovery, enabling each child to be inspired by their natural curiosity and to imagine how ordinary things become extraordinary. We help to start each journey, allowing each child to discover and explore in their own way. This is how children develop their imagination and it is the foundation for creativity.

Nurture Creativity

We are here to help nurture each child’s creativity and to help them develop their own ideas which we recognise and value.

Give Care

We are privileged to help and share in the magic of childhood and our caring will make a positive difference in the lives of children, for our partners, colleagues and the world we find ourselves in today. We are passionate about being authentic and going the extra mile for other people and exceeding expectations because it feels right and because we care.

Sessions and themes are innovative

Sessions and themes are innovative, and background knowledge behind each individual project is both intrigueing and inspiring. Children are not left to their own device but helped, encouraged, and have their potentials in learning explored throughout.

Fantastic birthday party

I would definitely recommend the Creation Station. We hired them for my daughters 7th birthday party and everyone had a wonderful time! Sarah was so good with our little guests and made it so much fun. The party bags were something different to take home too.

We hired the Creation Station for our daughter's 5th Birthday Party

We hired the Creation Station for our daughter's joint 5th birthday party and were delighted with the service Yat-Chen and Yat-On provided. They were very professional and responsive beforehand, providing us with information about the day, our options and answering any questions we had. On the day they arrived promptly, set up everything and took charge of the 25 children with ease. They have a lovely calm and friendly manner and accommodated latecomers without any issue. The children loved the party and all the crafts and both women were amazing at keeping their attention and moving them through the different activities. All the other parents commented what a relaxing party it was, as we didn't have to do anything, and how much the children enjoyed it. They cleared everything up afterwards and even managed to take some great photos for us of the children doing the crafts. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking to have a craft party.

Beautiful Birthday Party

Sarah came to our garden party for my daughter (7) and managed to keep 11 girls happy and entertained for the whole party. The activities were fun and kept the girls interested. Sarah had a lovely way of interacting with girls and was very professional but friendly and felt like having a family friend over. My daughter was beyond pleased with all her creations and the gift that her friends all made for her is really special and has pride of place on my daughters bedroom wall. I I would recommend Sarah to anyone. She gave our daughter a magical birthday. Thankyou.
