What age children is Charlie’s Chimps suitable for?

Regular mini workshops at Castle Court School’s Badger Cubs Club are for little ones aged 3 months to 3 years.  Charlie’s Chimps also offers one off and regular workshops for children in nurseries, pre-schools and schools (up to and including reception).  Additional performing arts input is available for other year groups.

How can I arrange for my child's school, nursery or pre-school to have a Charlie's Chimps workshop?

Do get in touch with the establishment to see if there is the possibility of booking a Charlie’s Chimps workshop!  Megan will be delighted to provide a quote for any setting in Dorset.

Is my baby too young or will they still benefit?
If your child is not yet walking, they will still benefit tremendously from being part of Charlie’s Chimps – YOU can fly them high in the sky into the bubbles and towards the puppets, jig them gently as we mime being chased, swoop them from side to side as we jump over squelchy mud etc.  Imagination is the key!
   
How long are workshops?

Full workshops are designed to fit a 35 minute slot (and mini workshops are created to fit a 20-25 minute slot) in order to maximise concentration and enjoyment for the children.

Who might the child’s accompanying adult at an open workshop be?

The accompanying adult might be a parent, Grandparent, childminder, relative or friend.  All are welcome!

Is it alright to come to Charlie's Chimps if my child or I are unwell?

It’s best not to attend Charlie’s Chimps if you or your child have an illness that is contagious as we want to help everyone to stay healthy.  Thanks 🙂
