During this time we run our Arts & Crafts sessions where your child will explore, be creative, and develop motor skills by participating in different types of activities from painting, sticking, to singing and dressing up.
These activities are designed using the Early Years Foundation Stage with the overall aim of introducing children to skills, knowledge and understanding in a fun interactive way by encouraging children to express themselves.
We also focus on developing children’s language, communication, listening skills and hand eye coordination.
** Spend quality time with your little one ** Meet other parents & children ** Enjoy activities together ** Share ideas and information**A fantastic way for parents and children to interact**.
