Consumer to Creator Workshops
  • Photography workshops with exhibition on the Friday
  • Art workshops with exhibition on the Friday
  • Kidpreneur workshops creating your own microbusiness for market on Friday

Why Kidpreneurship in our programme?

Financial literacy is on the agenda of our primary school curriculum but there is no across the board implementation of this yet.

We provide this in our holiday programme through our children running their own micro business at the childrens market.

Before this we offer a two hour fun session which is interactive, thought provoking and introduces the children to the idea of autonomy and self-governance through having a plan and implementing it. Learning to discern whether the effort is worth the results and the first steps of financial literacy. Every attendee receives a certificate.

Please note: we simplify the session for 5-7 year olds. They won't feel like they are in a classroom they will have lots of fun but learn some concepts along the way - learning through fun.
