Little Piccolo's

Music and Movement Time for the under fives. Little Piccollo's provide music classes for toddlers and pre-school chidren. Young children are given an opportunity to enjoy and participate in music in a fun yet educational way.

The classes aim to develop a firm musical foundation along with a range of other skills;

  • Singing and musical games help to develop confidence alongside language and listening skills.
  • Co-operation and social skills through sharing and learning to take turns.
  • Co-ordination and creativity through movement and playing percussion instruments.

Cookery

An introduction to the fun of healthy eating through simple, fun home cooking & baking using healthy, locally sourced produce, along with ingredients that the children will have grown themselves.Digging,washing, mixing, mashing, whisking, stirring, melting, decorating, washing up & eating! All materials provided.

 

There is no extra charge for the clubs, they are included as part of the session. Childcare vouchers can be used towards the cost of these sessions and for holiday clubs.

The children have a break and a healthy snack from 2:15pm to 2:30pm. 

 

Nature

We are so lucky here at The Park that we have unlimited access to the Iscoyd Park estate grounds. We try to get outdoors and enjoy a walk every day. On a Wednesday and a Friday afternoon (weather dependant - though we have been known to take a walk in the rain) we enjoy walks in the parkland with a view to finding something to do with nature. Whether it is looking for signs of different seasons, visiting the pigs, sheep or horse or just enjoying the sunshine, we take the opportunity by the horns and enjoy the outdoors.

Diddidance 

At Diddidance we use various dancing games and exercises, bells, hoops and dance ribbons to our own funky pop songs your little one not only improves their rhythm and co-ordination but also social and gross motor skills. We also look at different dance styles every half term from salsa and hip hop to country and disco. We take part in diddidance on a Thursday morning from 11a.m. and is £3 per session.

 

Playdough

All children love playdough, but it can get sticky and covered in germs. But we at The Park make a fresh batch of our own playdough every Thursday afternoon. The children help to choose the colour and fragrance and help us to mix the dough together. Playdough has so many learning outcomes for children such as, motor skills, pushing, pulling, pinching, sharing, cutting, rolling and communication.
