Being a child in today's world can be exhausting! With busy school days, full of many challenges from learning new skills, social interactions and a huge range of emotions, it's not surprising that our children can seem to be 'running on empty'!
As adults our brains are more developed and better equipped to cope with the minefield of challenges that we can encounter each day, but added to a steady flow of external stimuli, concentration, tiredness and potential hunger, our little ones can understandably struggle to process everything. Known as 'after-school restraint collapse' - the resulting 'meltdown' that parents often encounter is becoming more apparent as academic expectations are raised and children become increasingly over-scheduled.
At the end of a busy school day what children need is a space to relax and decompress - but in a calm and fun way. After-school clubs are an excellent way to help your child to transition from their busy fun-filled day and begin to process everything.
Our award-winning 'Create Club' programmes offer a fun, creative session for children to explore and create using a wide range of materials. They can relax and wind down whilst using their imaginations to discover and develop their ideas from within our educational based themes. Jet in outer space, travel around the world, explore the wonderful world of science and be inspired by nature - and much more!
Would your child love to paint, draw, model, sculpt, collage, cut, stick, squish, squirt, mark, make, transform, laugh, imagine, think, create, experiment and make new friends?
With the squeeze on creativity in the education system, we are proud to support children, parents, teachers and governors with fun and educational Create Clubs, and are delighted that our programs have won the prestigious 'Innovation in Children's Education Award'.
