The Create project is an art-making experience for parents and carers that engages them in active play with the children, aged 5 and under, in their care. Running two mornings a week the project aims to provide active childhood experiences for the adults and children. The Create Project provides the resources, ideas and creative inspiration for a range of activities that can often be replicated in the home environment using recycled, cheap and easily obtainable materials.

The Saturday programme allows children to participate in a relaxed yet structured environment, alternating between dance and art throughout the morning. The classes are split into two age groups, 5-7 years and 8-12 years. A healthy snack is provided in the break between classes.

The art classes use materials that can often be found in the home environment, offering simple techniques that can easily be replicated.

Our Saturday Dance classes introduce children to new dance techniques, allowing them to learn at their own pace. Sessions run every Saturday during term time from 10.30am.
