CREATIVE KIDS – programme details

The Weekly Programme Structure

About Creative Kids

This programme has been designed to maximise on the innate creativity of kids ideas, and to foster good negotiations skills and confidence building. From 5 year olds to 13's , all participants in Creative Kids are not only part of the bigger "whanau" of Artmakers,  but become key members and decision-makers in their smaller teams. Many children have attended for years, enjoying the adaptability of the programme structure and the variety of activities both in the Art & Craft projects, and the endless number of  ways the original plays can be put together !

What to bring: Like a school day, please bring lunch and snacks, a personal drink bottle, SHOES, and a sun hat for the summer programme and an old shirt or coverups - we will get a bit  messy with paint and glue !

Medical or special needs:  Please note all medical or special needs IN WRITING BEFOREHAND and at the time of registration so we can evaluate any particular care needs that staff will undertake.
