INTRODUCE​ ​YOUR​ ​CHILD​ ​TO​ ​AN​ ​AWE​ ​INSPIRING​ ​PLAY​ ​SPACE CURIOUS​ ​KIDS​ ​TO​ ​LAUNCH​ ​THIS​ ​AUTUMN


Curious​ ​Kids​ ​is​ ​a​ ​brand​ ​new​ ​immersive,​ ​sensory​ ​and​ ​digital​ ​class​ ​for​ ​children​ ​aged​ ​6​ ​months to​ ​4​ ​years​ ​of​ ​age,​ ​that​ ​combines​ ​exploratory​ ​play​ ​and​ ​led​ ​play.​ ​The​ ​50​ ​minute​ ​class​ ​will​ ​allow children​ ​to​ ​explore​ ​equipment​ ​that​ ​will​ ​support​ ​their​ ​mental,​ ​physical​ ​and​ ​creative development.​ ​The​ ​led​ ​play​ ​uses​ ​song,​ ​dance​ ​and​ ​storytelling​ ​to​ ​engage​ ​children​ ​and encourage​ ​social​ ​skills​ ​and​ ​the​ ​development​ ​of​ ​confidence. Following​ ​a​ ​successful​ ​pilot​ ​class​ ​at​ ​Turf​ ​Projects​ ​in​ ​Croydon,​ ​which​ ​received​ ​extremely positive​ ​reviews​ ​from​ ​parents.​ ​The​ ​first​ ​term​ ​of​ ​Curious​ ​Kids​ ​will​ ​be​ ​launching​ ​this September​ ​at​ ​Trinity​ ​Old-Whitgiftians​ ​Sports​ ​Ground​ ​in​ ​Sanderstead. Eleanor​ ​Appleton,​ ​the​ ​founder​ ​of​ ​Curious​ ​Kids,​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​start​ ​a​ ​class​ ​that​ ​incorporated interactive​ ​digital​ ​installation​ ​and​ ​theatrical​ ​aids,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​lighting​ ​effects,​ ​so​ ​she​ ​could​ ​offer something​ ​different​ ​to​ ​what​ ​is​ ​currently​ ​available​ ​to​ ​parents.​ ​‘I​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​create​ ​a​ ​play​ ​space that​ ​made​ ​children​ ​feel​ ​like​ ​they​ ​were​ ​stepping​ ​into​ ​another​ ​world​ ​full​ ​of​ ​wonder​ ​and adventure,​ ​but​ ​one​ ​that​ ​also​ ​aided​ ​development’. Eleanor​ ​is​ ​working​ ​with​ ​Vittoria​ ​Belli,​ ​a​ ​projection​ ​mapper​ ​and​ ​animator,​ ​to​ ​create​ ​an interactive​ ​projection​ ​to​ ​compliment​ ​various​ ​other​ ​developmental​ ​activities. Eleanor​ ​says​ ​‘the​ ​space​ ​at​ ​TMWCC​ ​is​ ​perfect​ ​for​ ​what​ ​we​ ​are​ ​trying​ ​to​ ​achieve​ ​with​ ​Curious Kids​ ​as​ ​it​ ​is​ ​set​ ​up​ ​for​ ​theatre,​ ​so​ ​we​ ​can​ ​completely​ ​control​ ​the​ ​lighting​ ​which​ ​makes projecting​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​easier.​ ​There​ ​is​ ​also​ ​a​ ​space​ ​for​ ​parents​ ​to​ ​have​ ​a​ ​cup​ ​of​ ​tea​ ​or​ ​coffee​ ​whilst they​ ​are​ ​waiting​ ​for​ ​the​ ​class.’ Classes​ ​will​ ​be​ ​split​ ​into​ ​three​ ​age​ ​groups;​ ​6​ ​months​ ​-​ ​walking​ ​(9.30am),​ ​walking​ ​-​ ​2yrs (10.30am),​ ​2yrs​ ​-​ ​4yrs​ ​(11.30am).​ ​The​ ​first​ ​class​ ​is​ ​on​ ​Friday​ ​22nd​ ​September​ ​and​ ​single sessions​ ​are​ ​£6.50,​ ​or​ ​a​ ​6​ ​session​ ​block​ ​is​ ​£36.​ ​For​ ​bookings​ ​email [email protected]
