Toodlelou Creativity Lab is delighted to offer a range of classes for budding creatives from toddlers up to big kids. All of our classes introduce young people to the joy of creative expression and experimentation. We value process over product and believe whole-heartedly that creativity is an essential component of learning.
We are currently running the following classes:
For Toddlers & Preschoolers
Toddler Play– 1 hour free form creativity class for toddlers aged 18 months to 3 years. We experiment, investigate, play and learn through inspired art and sensory experiences. There is a good chance your toddler will get messy, but for once you won’t be the one cleaning up! Class Details – this class takes place weekly on Wednesday mornings at 10.30 – 11.30am.
Story & a Craft– a wonderful hour of reading, learning and inspired creating. We’ll be choosing a beautiful children’s story each week and start the hour with storytime. With their little minds inspired by captivating illustrations and a magical tale, we’ll bring the story to life with a craft to bring home. Class Details – this class takes place Thursday afternoons at 3.30pm – 4.30pm.
Creative STEAM– this class explores scientific concepts and topics through a mix of science experiments and art projects and a combination of the two.
