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.

Creative Crafters Session for Adults - Hereford

A fantastic opening night for Creation Station Hereford's first of what will be monthly Creative crafters sessions for adults. The session involved wine glass painting and making beaded wine charms. All materials provided are of excellent quality with a detailed explanation of how to use and apply the products, as well as ideas, help and guidance given when needed. The session was set in a lovely friendly venue, providing drinks and lovely nibbles. The class is excellent value for money and covers all products you use to create your items to take home. Alison is very friendly, warm and welcoming to everyone who comes to her sessions and is full of ideas and enhusiasm for what she does.
