Our Values

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.

Sharon was brilliant with all the children. She arrived early with everything needed to make the party easy and fun for us all. The children really seemed to enjoy focusing on the craft activities and the time given to each activity was well pitched for them (we had a group of 5 year olds)

Arty Party

Chantal and Liz delivered an excellent Arty Party for my daughter’s 6th birthday. There was great communication in the run up to the party and the afternoon itself ran smoothly. They were very organised and professional - everything needed for the arts and crafts was supplied by them and I didn’t have to think about anything. They kept the children (aged 3-8, girls and boys) interested and engaged throughout the 2 hrs (with a gap for food part way through) and the magic box (from which each activity was produced) was very popular! There were also some lovely personal touches, such as a personalised poster for my daughter with her name and birthday on, that the children coloured in together and a video compilation of photos of the activities (only my daughter featured which Chantal asked persmission for first) as a memento. Had lots of comments from other mums about how good a party it was - and a refreshing change from the sometime manic discos etc. Overall very happy and would highly recommend :-). There are also a wide range of activities to chose from so something for everyone.
