Special Events and Short Courses

NEW - The Story Frog

Trial Session - Saturday 17 August at 09.00

Then commences on Mondays at 12.45 , 2nd September


A wonderful pre-school class which aims to support parents and care-givers in teaching their children the skills they need for reading and writing, all through PLAY!

As well as phonics, we focus on listening skills, oral blending, fine motor control skills, expressive arts and more, all in a play-based, child-led environment.

Aimed at 2 - 5 year olds, we're all about capturing little imaginations!

We also have a Tiddlers class for the smaller people in your life.  Focussed around those really early life skills like tummy time and sitting up through to developing their speech development and language skills, music, rhythm,  songs and nursery rhymes!  Did you know, if a child knows 8 nursery rhymes before they are three then they are set to develop well in school?  All that AND we love to get messy and develop their gross motor skills so they can hop around like the biggest frogs in the pond!

Aimed at babysitting from sitting to around age 2.

Another huge benefit from the classes is socialising with other parents/carers of children around the same age.
