All our sessions are designed to encourage active learning and creative thinking (skills for life!). They support toddlers and pre-school children up to 4 years as they develop skills across the Early Years Foundation Stage. See our website for more details.
“My daughter is always so excited to go and see Mia and asks all week long when she is going again. She enjoys getting messy and having fun exploring coloured ice, custard, foam, cooked spaghetti, jelly and all sorts! She comes home with some fantastic crafts and pictures which she is proud to show off. I am always impressed by the level of imagination and creativity and the resources used are always of high quality. I am thrilled to have found someone who brings out my daughters creative side and cannot recommend what Mia offers highly enough.” (Parent –Kate )
