"These classes give my 2 and 4 year old the opportunity to learn in such a fun and memorable way. It's amazing to see them applying different concepts they've been taught, sometimes weeks after the class!"
A. Howard - parent
How it Works
We work with nurseries, childminders* and other childcare settings who want to bring expert science and engineering education seamlessly to their children on a weekly basis.
Our award-winning online sessions are designed and taught by an experienced primary teacher, working alongside other early years experts. They follow the child-led play model recommended for Early Years settings and also followed in Montessori nurseries.
We engage children with learning through stories, movement, singing and demonstrations, all on the theme of each session. We also inspire the children to engage in purposeful playing and hands-on exploring after the end of each online session. The collection of resources we provide saves you time too.
With our monthly subscription, your setting will receive access to:
A brand new session on a new theme every week to watch whenever suits your timetable
A back catalogue of on-demand sessions for you to choose the theme that works best for you each week
Observation Sheets with links to EYFS learning for every session, including the EYFS Areas of Learning and Characteristics of Effective Learning
Downloadable Learning Journals tailored to each session.
Guidance to get the most out of Little STEAMers in a childcare setting
An optional training video to help your staff understand the session format and how they can facilitate
Bonus content for every session, such as simple worksheets or additional experiments to try yourselves
A 50% discount code to pass on to your parents for them to join Little STEAMers from home too

Our Little STEAMers in Action
The Serious Bit....
The class leader, Laura Cross, is a qualified and experienced teacher.
She has an enhanced DBS (criminal record) check and pediatric first aid training.
All classes are fully insured and a risk assessment is carried out prior to each session.

Home learning during lockdown finally went out the window, but I always knew my daughter was learning something with our Little STEAMers class every week.
These were the only classes we stuck with week in week out because my daughter loved them so much!

It's been wonderful watching my son remember all the things he's learnt through these classes when playing.
One of the first things he said he wanted to do once lockdown was over was to visit Laura at her home!

Outstanding. Seriously outstanding. Art, singing, science and parenting all at the same time!
My wee girl absolutely loved the class. Thank you!
