Creation Station brings Arts into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths to inspire preschool children.

Creation Station brings Arts into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths to inspire preschool children

Creativity is too often squeezed out of education even though it develops a wide range of skills within all areas of children’s learning and life.

Creation Station award winning classes

This is why The Creation Station has developed their award-winning Little Explorer programmes to help children aged fifteen months to five years, learn about first concepts in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

By bringing arts into STEM, also known as STEAM, families and childcare organisations will be able enjoy a range of exciting themed classes. Each class is designed to spark each child’s curiosity and to create journeys of exploration and discovery in a fun and hands-on way. 

Creation Station creates journey's of exploration and discovery

Little Explorer programmes are themed as Magical Me, My Wonderful World and Animal Antics and are underpinned by the governments Early Years Foundation Stage.

The award-winning fun includes printing and making wind mobiles, modelling your own mythical creature, creating your own very hungry caterpillar, life size life paintings whilst using an exciting range of tools and materials and much more. The programmes help children to develop their concentration, mindfulness, hand and eye co-ordination and problem-solving skills.

Families attending the Creation Station Little Explorer classes will still be able to enjoy the award-winning hands on creative fun classes and ALSO benefit from some of the classes being linked to understanding the simple STEM concepts in a fun and creative way.

Creation Station family fun

Dr.Amanda Gummer, founder of Fundamentally Children stated “Creativity underpins a lot of STEM skills so it is great to see such forward thinking from The Creation Station with their Little Explorer programmes, combining STEM learning with creativity and arts to promote holistic development in young children. The clever use of creative activities with STEM based learning outcomes helps all children engage with science and see it as a fun way of exploring our fascinating world. Age appropriate topics that children can relate to are a great way to introduce these concepts”.

Sarah Cressall founder of Creation Station said “I established our Little Explorer classes back in 2002 to give my own three boys the opportunity to explore, discover and develop through creative experiences. They have grown so much by having a creative outlook to their learning. My boys have gone on to study Engineering, Maths and one is working for a charity. Their teachers have all commented that they are creative thinkers and have been able to tackle challenges because of their creative approach. At Creation Station we’ve always encouraged creative thinking within our classes and I’m delighted to officially announce that we are proud to bring the arts into all areas of learning and include STEM elements in many of our classes”.

Creation Station helping build essential early learning skills

The Creation Station classes help to develop a wide range of skills and attributes including self-esteem, mindfulness, problem solving, hand and eye coordination to simple maths and engineering concepts. Each week classes have a different focus so children and parents can be truly inspired by individual journeys of discovery and development.

As well as STEAM classes, families and local child care organisations can look forward to booking a wide array of creative classes including: great reading sessions with the Eric Carle’s Very Hungry Caterpillar, Usborne children’s book ‘That’s not my Flamingo’, Play-Doh Wheel Gravel Yard creative fun, a weeks worth of fun with Children Activity week with profits going to Caudwell Children plus Disney on Ice themed classes too. It’s guaranteed we will be having lots of creative fun!”

The workshop was very informative and my son enjoyed himself. It would be beneficial if another assistant was available as my son was sometimes overlooked which meant that I had to leave my other child unattended to help him

We attended two family fun sessions and they were perfect for my 6 and 2 year old. It was really nice to find something they could both enjoy together. There was lots of choice of things to make and good quality materials. We made lots of Easter themed crafty items to take away. We'll definitely go back.

Liza did an amazing job leading craft activities at my daughter's birthday party recently. She was really organised and easy to talk to and came round in advance of the party to make arrangements. On the day of the party she helped all of the children to create lovely arty objects. Her manner with the children was excellent and my daughter absolutely loved the party. I would definitely recommend the Arty Party with Liza to other parents! Thank you!
