Activities at The Whitaker

Early Years Studio. Mark Making

Our Early Years Studio is aimed at children who are walking due to the play based nature of each session.

Come explore, play and create. Each session will facilitate child-lead play through the provision of hands-on, sensory experiences and open-ended activities.

As these are play-based children must be supervised at all times, therefore we ask for a ration of 1 adult for every 3 children.

Through the facilitation of play and exploration, we will promote collaboration between adults and children to inspire imagination, inquisitiveness, and experimentation.

There are two sessions. First play session at 9.30am - 11am. Second play session at 1pm - 2.30pm

If you have any questions about the sessions please email us.
