Our toddler and pre school classes

Lively, colourful, creative, (often messy!) art classes for toddlers and children aged 16 months plus

Our Little ARTventurers class is a lively weekly session suitable for older toddlers and pre schoolers aged between approx 16-18 months and 4 years. Each week we have fantastic fun exploring and creating with various art and craft materials, allowing the children to discover and enjoy getting messy and creative!

What happens during a Little ARTventurers class?

Our colourful, lively Little ARTventurers classes start with our energetic warm up song before it’s time for circle time and a chance to peep into the Magic Craft Box! Once we’ve introduced our weekly theme it’s time to get started! Painting techniques, craft activities, scissor practice, modelling, sensory activities ….. all of our sessions and activities are carefully planned to support the Early Learning goals and in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. We offer a combination of structured and free play activities during these hour long sessions – the sessions are lead by the children themselves who are encouraged to experiment and try new techniques and ways of using the materials and mediums on offer. Helped along by our Artventuring friend Arty the Bear we round off each session with social and circle time which we firmly believe to be a vital part of the session, helping the children to form friendships and a chance for mums to chat too! After a well deserved snack and drink it’s time for a noisy sing-a-long with instruments and often bubbles or the big parachute! Each child leaves the session with a selection of bright and colourful masterpieces to go on the fridge door and a real sense of acheivement.

And perhaps best of all – we clean up all of the mess!

I’d love to bring my little one along to a class – how do I arrange it?

All of the Little ARTventurers sessions do need to be pre booked – this is simply because we need to know numbers of children in advance so that we can plan sessions properly, continue to offer high quality activities and make sure we bring along enough materials for everyone! The session price includes all materials and refreshments for the little artists too! Sessions are booked in half term blocks (typically 5 or 6 week blocks) but you and your little one are more than welcome to try out a first session on a “pay as you go” basis before signing up for a block of sessions.

If you and your little one would love to join us for lots of colourful, creative, messy fun then get in touch!toddler art class
