Participating in organised activities offers families many health and wellbeing benefits, whilst also supporting the social, emotional, physical and mental development of your child. To give you a little inspiration, we’ve put together some expert advice to give you some more information about why these activities are great for you and your child.

Academic Activities

Brain building!

From birth to age 5, a child’s brain develops more than at any other time in life! They learn most rapidly and the quality of their experiences help shape how their brains grow, and their ability to learn and achieve, both in education and also in life! Between the ages of 2 and 3 a child's brain power increases at a startling rate!

Academic themed activities, usually from pre-school age up, introduce early academic subjects like science, maths, reading and languages in a gentle, fun and engaging way to keep little ones interested,  support 'brain building' and confidence and enhance 'school readiness'.   

For school age children, in-class learning can be supported with extra academic and educational themed classes and sessions. One-to-one tutors can support specific educational needs too and empower children in terms of their confidence and abilities.

Arts & Crafts and Creative Activities

The benefits of sharing creative play with your child are well documented, it builds many of the essential core skills including hand : eye co-ordination, problem solving, fine motor skill development along with little hand and finger strength - not forgetting social/interactive skills and confidence. All of which help to build a strong foundation for each developmental step, supporting 'school readiness'.

However, it can be tricky providing your baby or toddler with hands-on arts and crafts activities at home. As busy parents we can all struggle with ideas, time or energy.  That’s precisely why art, craft and messy play groups have been established - to give you quality, fun, creative experiences with your child in a safe, nurturing and friendly environment.

It's the perfect solution for all your child's creativity needs, with no stress or mess for you!  Not only do you share some great creative fun with your child, the classes are very social and full of laughter and giggles too.
