Benefits to the Child

How do our sessions benefit your child?

“We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry”
–Maria Montessori

It has now been scientifically proven that engaging in musical activity stimulates every area of the brain and creates new connections. Regular creative activity leads to greater problem solving ability in adult life. Visualising a range of results, necessary in effective problem solving, involves the imagination.

Through taking your child on an imaginative, creative, musical journey to real distant lands, not only does he/she engage in activities directly related to key Stage One Science, Geography and Music but also improves general outcomes for later life.

Your child will be having so much fun they won’t even realise all this other important stuff is going on!

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”
–Aristotle

 

Getting close up and personal with live exotic animals they rarely get a chance to see is a fascinating, educational and rewarding experience, too, for any age. Not only does it give them the chance to scientifically investigate patterns, similarities, differences and classifications, to further their knowledge within the national curriculum, but it also feeds the soul. Caring for an animal is one of the most spiritually rewarding activities there is. It fosters empathy as well as the understanding of the physical and emotional needs of a creature separate to oneself.

 

“My son absolutely loves learning about the different animals in a fun and interesting way. I’ve never seen him concentrate and sit still for so long!! We had a great time”
–Emma Carlick, Countesthorpe
