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.
