Mini Professors Ashford-Maidstone


 Covid-19 Update - Tuesday 17th March 2020

As you will know, the government has now advised the public against only the most essential travel and to avoid social gatherings in an attempt to slow the spread of coronavirus.  Whilst local schools, nurseries and child care provisions are not currently required to close and Mini Professors is classified as an education setting, and while some of our colleagues are able to continue to run sessions, we have decided locally it is in the best interests of our customers to temporarily suspend classes for the next two weeks as of immediate effect.

Those of you booked on to our current term or monthly weekend classes will have received an email detailing when we hope to resume classes again. This is, obviously, dependent on the most up to date government advice, decisions of our hired venues and the health of our class leaders. We will be in touch to keep you all updated.

I would like to thank you all for your continued support, words of kindness and understanding in these unprecedented times.

Stay safe, with love from Professor Helen x





Interactive Science Classes for children aged 2 to 5 years


 Do you have a pre-schooler who just loves to ask questions about everything? Are you looking for a fun, unique and interesting way to support their language development, boost confidence and develop social skills? 

We are incredibly excited to be running the only Mini Professor Science classes in Kent. Mini Professors is a pre-school Science program for children aged 2-5 years old. Our weekly classes run term time and there is a new science topic every week.

Our classes start with our science song and an introduction to the topic before everyone takes part in a hands on experiment. Then we have a short video to reinforce the learning and a story based on the week's topic. We take part in another hands on experiment before a summary. 

Ashford classes run every Wednesday in term time at Singleton Environment Centre:

9.15am - 10.00am Mini Professors aged 2 - 3 years;

10.30am - 11.15am Mini Professors aged 4 - 5 years


In addition to our weekly classes we run weekend classes twice a month.

Saturday Science takes place at Singleton Environment Centre and Sunday Science takes place at Tyland Barn Wildlife Centre. Please see our Events tab for information on dates classes are running in 2020.

9.15am - 10.00am Mini Professors aged 2 years to 3 years 11 months
