How many children are in a workshop?

There is a maximum of 10 children in a group workshop. We keep our group small in order to make all the children feel safe, supported and comfortable. Every child can actively participate in discussions and activities. We get to know your child and can specifically address your concerns over the duration of the workshop.

How long is the workshop?

Each session lasts 1 hour. The workshops run once a week for 4 consecutive weeks.

We offer free Ongoing general support via a closed Facebook group, as well as a paid membership for families wanting a greater level of individual support.

Can parents stay?

YES!! Of course, you are always welcome to stay!

I would love for you to watch your child shine and see what we do. My priority is that all children feel comfortable and confident, so if you need to (or want to) stay, that is perfectly fine with me 😊

Of course, as a Mum myself, I understand the juggle, so if you can’t stay, you’re welcome to just drop your child off. The choice is completely up to you!

Parent’s have said they have learnt new skills and are able to help their children better form sitting in our sessions, but you may prefer an hour to yourself for a coffee in peace.

Either way, you will receive informative communication and useful resources for home via our private group for participants.

My child has a special need, can I still enrol them?

Yes of course! Our content is very appropriate for children with ASD, ADHD, SPD, Anxiety, Learning Difficulties as well as other needs. The skills we teach are important for ALL children regardless of their abilities. Our teachers have extensive experience with children with varying needs and are flexible in their teaching approach.
