These sessions allow children to explore stories in new ways through songs, instruments, and imaginary play. Whether your child is a ‘Caterpillar’, ‘Cocoon’ or ‘Butterfly’, they’ll get to meet new characters, stretch their imaginations, and have a lot of fun with fully interactive story sessions that are perfectly pitched for their age group.
