Do it Yourself


Use our interactive pre-recorded sessions to incorporate STEM affordably and flexibly on your own schedule.

Expert Led

Don’t have qualified STEM staff? That’s not a problem! Our award-winning sessions are designed and led by early years specialists, research-backed and tailored to the 3 - 5 years age group.


You can opt for online sessions on your choice of topic to lead in your own setting. Or with our in-person workshops we can come to you regularly or as a one-off, at a time that suits you.

Easy Set Up

Our self-led sessions are designed to keep your prep time low. We use resources you'll have available in your setting and we'll give your staff clear guidance on how to help. If we come in-person we'll do everything!

Parent Materials

Impress your parents with Parent Information sheets, printable Display Materials, a STEAM logo for your website and even Learning Journals and certificates to send home!

“I would highly recommend Little STEAMers for Nursery and Reception.

The presenting was well-pitched and the children thoroughly enjoyed it and developed their understanding...I loved the information that was sent home to parents too."

 - M. Begley, Lead of Science for Life Partnership

"The workshop was amazing! The best thing we've ever done on space - definitely better than our usual trip to the Science Museum! Can you come back every week?!"

 - Nursery teacher, The Grange Primary

How Little STEAMers Sessions Work

In our on-demand and in-person sessions, we introduce scientific ideas to children through stories, movement, singing and demonstrations. 

With age-appropriate activities that are easy to set up, children then engage in hands-on exploration and play, to help cement the ideas they've just learnt about.
