Brilliant Beasties

Brilliant Beasties

Exciting activity sessions for pre-schoolers at the American Museum & Gardens.

Come along to the American Museum & Gardens for our monthly sessions for pre-schoolers and their parents/carers. We will be singing songs, telling stories, sharing rhymes and making something together, while learning all about the “Brilliant Beasties”, our very lovely animal friends.

Each session will be led by Sally Warhurst who has many years of experience working with early-years and is passionate about encouraging children to explore their creativity, while building their confidence to join in with simple songs and storytelling with actions and props.
