About Active Creative - West Kent
PHYSICAL FUN CLASSES – a great workout for everybody!
Our active classes include a fabulous mixture of dance, creative movement, PE based activities, percussion instruments & action songs. Our classes are suitable for boys and girls aged about 22 months upwards.
EDUCATIONAL BUT SO MUCH FUN!
Our classes help improve physical skills such as jumping, hopping, rolling, skipping, turning, sliding as well as developing concepts such as hand-eye co-ordination, rhythm, space and balance BUT we also aid social skills vital for education such as listening, following instructions, turn taking and concentration.
A NEW ADVENTURE EACH WEEK
Although we follow a similar structure each week, we do use a huge range of equipment – balls, hoops, feathers, scarves, ribbons, pom poms, bean bags, parachute, percussion instruments, bubbles... We also use a wide range of music – Cbeebies, classical, film, chart, traditional children’s songs and each class is a mini-adventure in itself!
‘OUTSTANDING’ – OFSTED
Our schemes of work are written around the Early Years’ Foundation Stage and prepared by specialists who understand pre-school children. We follow half termly themes including ‘Nimble Numbers’, ‘Magical Mystical’ & ‘Up, Up, Up In The Air’! At the end of each programme, children receive a beautiful certificate. There are 12 to collect in all!

(At the end of the autumn & summer terms, we have great fun at our parties with food, games & presents!)
Parties are movement-based that are individually designed to reflect the child’s age and interests. They are a fantastic mixture of physical games, dance, singing and P.E. activities that will ensure that your child has an “all singing, all dancing” action packed party!
We also run classes in NURSERIES, CHILDREN’S CENTRES, PRE-SCHOOLS & SCHOOLS
