Have Fun

Ensure Quality

Spark Curiosity

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.

Spark Curiosity

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.

Austin had a great couple of days and was very proud of all the creations he came home with, they are exhibited for all to see! Lovely for him to do something different and being a fairly small group was great for him, not too overwhelming. Thank you x

My four year old absolutely loves his creation sessions.

My four year old absolutely loves his creation sessions once a week. He is doing things that I wouldn’t have thought to do and because it’s a set time each week we’re sitting down and doing it together! The bags are prepared for us with everything in that we need and it is so much fun getting the supplies out and waiting to find out what we are going to do with them each week. Eleanor is interactive and I noticed that on week 3 my young man is speaking out to her and wanting to engage with her. We are so happy to have found the creation station.

Brilliant

Brilliant. My granddaughter enjoys it very much. Kirsty who takes the club interacts with all the children lovely. If any of the children doesn’t quite get what they are supposed to be doing she goes over it again.She likes to see how their activity is progressing and encourages them all the way. She knows all the children and what they like and dislike in their art activities. It is not just an art group it is educational as well

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Today me and my daughters participated in two free taster sessions with Kelly via Zoom. One was for babies and the other was for children of a similar age to my four year old. Kelly was so so friendly and that really came across even through a screen. I loved the variety of activities the girls did, each creating a very different name plaque and one princess mirror. The bags were delivered last week which gave me time to look through them and just made everything smooth and organised. We are defiantly interested in further sessions around yearly events such as Christmas. If the virtual session today was as good as it was I can only imagine how fun and engaging a real life face to face one would be! Thanks again Kelly!!?
