A science programme that has been designed specifically for 2 to 5 year olds
These classes provide a unique opportunity for children to learn about science while spending time with their parent, grandparent or care giver.
Children love repetition, so every class begins with our Mini Professors ‘Welcome Song’, followed by an introduction to the topic that class using props, pictures and books. We encourage all children and adults to join in with the experiments to learn together. Each week there is a chance to listen to a story with your Professor, the children love this chance to engage and think about the science they have learnt that day. The children can also wear a mini lab coat if they would like to, so they can be involved in the whole experience.
The benefits of Mini Professors classes:
- Preparation for school - We actively encourage turn taking, socialising, sharing and answering questions
- Each Mini Professors session lasts 40 minutes and follows a set format so the children know what to expect next.
- We encourage the adults to join in so that they can carry on the learning experience at home with their children. We have lots of ideas for this on our blog
"Mini Professors has been a fun, active learning experience for my son (age 2.5yrs). He has thoroughly enjoyed every minute, and we will be back for more! The language, content and practical side has been delivered with real enthusiasm and at a perfect pace."
