In-Person Workshops

Are there breaks during the day?


Our full-day workshops include a morning and afternoon break, as well as 1 hour for lunchtime. Children can go outside to a secure space (weather permitting) during these times. We also break up the learning during the day with different activities that involve moving around the room or working with different children. We understand the importance of breaking up the day to maintain children's focus and keep them engaged.




Do you provide food?


Children should bring their own nut-free packed lunch. We will provide a drink and a nut-free snack during the day. We collect information on allergies and dietary requirements and do our best to take these into account.
