Created by our team of early childhood experts and specialists, we offer a range of unique and inspired Classes, differing at each of our two Atelier locations.
Our Classes provide children with a breadth of experiences and choices, encouraging development within a variety of contexts. We provide opportunities for children to develop different types of thinking and skills and as they grow in confidence through our programme, they begin to draw strands of knowledge and understanding together, building upon their prior discoveries, testing theories and experimenting.
Families can choose to attend the same or a different class on each visit, as many times in a week as you and your child wish!
Reggionarra (UE Square)
Join our team as we take you and your child on a journey through the world of storytelling, enveloping your child in wonder, imagination, drama, narrative and creativity through the language and magic of stories – the dance between the cognitive, expressive, rational and imaginative. Storytelling forms such a critical part of a child’s early years, linking strongly to pre-literary experiences supporting children with a love of books, poems, musical lyrics, rhyming and both fiction and non-fiction. Reggionarra is a colourful, imaginative, wondrous class with each week being a new story and journey for children to be part of.
Discover Wonder (Turf City and UE Square)
From the playground to the living room, and even in the stroller on your way to the Atelier, the world holds a sense of wonder for children. Discover Wonder brings the world closer to us, supporting young explorers in many ‘first’ interactions. From treasure baskets to heuristic play which helps children learn about various materials and their properties with different textures, weight, sound or scent. Messy play supports tactile exploration and creativity from paint to food colouring to dough play and mark-making. Engage all your senses and support your child in so many ‘firsts’ as they start to connect with the world. Discover Wonder ignites a child’s curiosity and encourages a love of learning.
Fascinating Fridays (Turf City and UE Square)
As the weekend fast approaches join our team and delight in something a little out of the ordinary. Friday’s call for unique and wondrous experiences where children will be inspired by engagements with nature, plants, insects, animals and habitats, alongside a plethora of materials, textures and sensory experiences. Colours, light, shadow, fabric, wood, plastic and metal are all catalysts to our senses, supporting us in making sense of the world and finding ways to connect and test our theories. Unique discoveries will be made through hands on exploration and interactivity. Book early to avoid disappointment.
Daddy & Me (UE Square)
A wonderful opportunity for fathers to spend some one on one time with their children and explore the wonder of the Atelier without feeling conscious that they are the only Dad in the room!
Family Connection (UE Square)
This popular mixed age Class purposefully accommodates families with one or more children under the
age of 36 months with an opportunity to spend time exploring the Atelier as a family. This is a great weekend outing for the whole family.
