Our approach is informed and inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of child-initiated learning which puts creativity and reflective practice at its heart. We aim to inspire, engage, empower and excite by learning together.
We like to observe and listen to people’s interests and ideas, and to plan together in response. We offer an exciting range of multi-sensory, open-ended, everyday materials, recycled resources and natural or found objects and artefacts and introduce them in unexpected ways to stimulate creative responses through different art-forms.
"Very passionate, variety of ideas and very involved"
