Imps Creativity

Excellent Ideas for Children & Adults  ♥  Play  ♥  Create  ♥  Explore

Imps can be booked to provide a  bespoke session for your setting.

Working to a brief agreed with your early years team, I design and deliver a session of activities that will meet your brief.  The focus might be on a particular subject area,  developmental need, a focus for parents,  some fresh ideas for a particular space, or for staff that would like some inspiration. These sessions have proved to be both wonderfully stimulating sessions for the children and highly motivating, inspiring professional development for staff.

The emphasis will always be on providing open-ended, creative activities and using recycled or very cheap materials. I want your staff to feel enthused, empowered and able to use the ideas at almost no cost at all…..

Sessions cost £150 per half day, which includes a previsit (to see your space and discuss your needs), designing your day, preparation, set-up/pack-up time and resources for up to 30 children. Further children cost £1.50 each. Travel costs are added at 45p per mile.

Please see below for some examples, and do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your brief. I am very inventive and love a challenge!

As always, inspirational for practitioners, children and parents alike. Complete active, engaged learning and enjoyment for all. Promoting creativity and transferable skills and experiences – vital to children of today and adults for the future” Janey Craigs, Early years Advisor, Norfolk County Council.

All the children have had a wonderful morning and experienced different sensory activities. The organisation, imagination and efforts that have gone into today have been wonderful and I can’t wait to do another themed day, thank you so much! Thank you so much! ” Thurlton Pre-School 2014

 

“The whole experience was just as I expected, staff can’t stop talking about the ideas! Children went home and told their mummies and I just wish I could afford to hire you weekly!! So looking forward to the next big event.. Feoffment Preschool, Feb 2013”

 

“The children’s faces said it all! What a magical session which we all thoroughly enjoyed. The ‘tea party’ reminded me of an Alice-in-Wonderland scene, with all the children so busy.
