With The Fern Club I wanted to create a place where children feel safe and confident to learn, free from formal pressures of normal education. My aim is to help fuel each child’s natural inquisitive nature and give them a place to experience new activities they may otherwise not have access to. Each activity they try will give them a whole plethora of benefits; STEAMM based skills with child development benefits. The Fern Club classes won’t just benefit your child, they’ll also give you the confidence to talk about and develop on the activities at home. Each station is set up with an info sheet to let you know what’s happening, what to expect, how to progress and how it benefits your child. I hope that you and your child will leave the classes with more skills, knowledge and a love for learning.
Yes! I’ve done all the planning and preparation behind the scenes so when you arrive you can get down to the important stuff, playing, exploring and learning. Of course… I may forget things now and then (don’t we all from time to time) so if you have any ideas or suggestions let me know and I’ll do my best to incorporate them into class. Come talk to me during class, email me, call me or send me a message.
Something they feel comfy in, easy to move around in and the ability to get their feet out if they want to. Sometimes skills will be easier with bare feet. Often I’ll do the class barefooted, it’s not essential for your little one to but if they want to, they can.
When you sign up for a block of classes you’ll initially choose your preferred venue. If you’re unable to make a class, just let me know and I’ll see where I have space on other days at other venues. At the moment we’re not able to offer multi-venue participation through the website but we hope to in the future.
