We have three different classses to enjoy!
Mini Monsterz ***New Class***
Brand new sensory class for babies. The class has a large sensory area with a sensory mat with different textures to explore and overhanging objects to watch/reach for as well as sensory bottles and props. A large dark tent full of lights to explore. A music area to experiment with sound and finally the messy area. The messy area has 3 stations, one dry messy play station suitable for all ages attending, a water station and finally an example of something we would bring to our Messy Monsterz class. This last station if you have children under 6 months you may wish to avoid or just dip their toes in so they get to explore too! The last station is always situated next to our washing up facilities.
Suitable for children from 6-8 weeks to pre walkers.
The class is 45 minutes in duration. We commence the class with our welcome song before revealing the mess! It is then a free play class to your explore at your own leisure. We gather together to read a story or sing some songs relating to the theme in the music area before singing our goodbye song.
Towels, flannels and washing up facilities are provided as well as plastic bags for wet clothing. Old clothes are recommended if you want to enjoy the mess. Adult overalls are available to protect your clothes but we dont provide protective wear for little ones.
This is our flagship messiest class. In every class there are 10 stations of themed messy play. This includes paint, sand, water, a sensory area, dark tent and craft/colouring. The remaining 4 stations vary every week in material to introduce different textures & smells for your little ones to explore.
Suitable for children 6 months to 4 years
The class is 60 minutes in duration. Before the class starts there is always a short craft/drawing and themed sensory materials for the little ones who aren't quite ready for craft to occupy them. We commence the class with our welcome song before revealing the mess! We then guarantee at least 45 minutes of free messy play before clean up. Once all clean we gather together to read a story or sing some songs relating to the theme before singing our goodbye song.
All materials used in this class are safe and non-toxic but we do start to introduce materials that we wouldn’t advise you to put in your mouth i.e. paint, glue during the craft and vinegar in our messy science! So anything we would not encourage them to pop in their mouths is in a red container, tray or tub! Ocassionally we run out of red tubs and trays and use the pink one but in addition to the red tray system we will always advise you at the start of the class.
Towels, flannels and washing up facilities are provided as well as plastic bags for wet clothing. Old clothes are recommended as we the paint is not washable. Adult overalls are available to protect your clothes but we dont provide protective wear for little ones.
Aqua Monsterz ***New Class***
Water play only session perfect for your water loving little splashers! There are 6 stations of themed water play, they regularly change but there will always be a paddling pool, water channelling and a bubble station where you little one can blow bubbles.
Suitable for children 6 months to 4 years
The class is 45 minutes in duration. We commence the class with our welcome song we then go straight into free play. We have bubbles from the bubble machine or snow from the snow machine to signify the end of the class and sing some songs relating to the theme before singing our goodbye song.
Towels are provided for getting dry and bags for wet clothing. Swim nappies and swimwear are recommended for this this class but old clothes are good too. Although its water/liquid based, we may use dyes to colour the water or other liquids such as squash or tea for example.
