Professionally delivered

Professionally delivered, fun, arty sessions even during Covid. Keeps everyone engaged in the task(s). My 7 & 10 year old really enjoy going. We've accessed free sessions and a 12 week paid block, delivered as an after school club.

So much fun with Emma!

My 3 year old daughter is having a great time on Emma’s “shapes” course via Zoom! Emma is great at interacting with the children, and always looks at what they’ve made and makes encouraging comments on what they are doing, which my daughter really loves. Emma’s course is great fun with songs and plenty of ideas to expand imaginations!!
