About our programs

Your children will be offered the opportunity to grow in self-esteem, confidence and curiosity while attending a range of fun-filled workshops throughout the year. These workshops will build on children’s talents along with knowledge of the world.

Our workshops will build skills in the areas of Science, Drama, Art and Reading. Children will be offered many opportunities to design, create, and build several interesting objects that will enhance their learning in a fun and inclusive way!

 

ART 

Children will discover a range of art styles. We like to keep a sense of surprise and wonder about our workshops, but without giving too much away children will explore ways to create colourful and magical art works using coloured tissue paper along with discovering how salt can be used to create uniquely beautiful images!

This workshop will build children’s skills in coordination, following a procedure, independence and communication.

Appropriate for ages 3 to 7.
