Art in the Park Derby – Derby Kids Activities

Art in the Park Derby

“Art in the Park Derby” is a private creative enterprise based at the heart of Markeaton Park. Our art studio is part of an artistic hub called “The Craft Village”, a creative oasis where
people visiting the park can take time out and engage in mindful creative activities.

We have over 9 years’ experience working with children and young people, delivering painting, drawing, air drying clay modelling and mosaic activities for children of all ages. Our team of professional, DBS and liability insured art teachers, had been working with local schools, City Councils, and the National Trust, from various locations as well as from our gorgeous studio. We have regular Saturday and Sunday in-house classes for little ones as well as creative birthday parties.

We are passionate about classical and modern art, and cover a range of courses and workshops focused on various topics, such as natural science, popular characters, manga, and anime art. Each theme runs for 7-9 sessions, but classes can be booked individually. All sessions include a group demo as well as 1-2-1 advice to suit each child’s needs and comprehension. Most creative mediums, colouring pencils, watercolours, collage, acrylic, gouache, print making, will be provided.

Brazilian Soccer Schools Derby

Brazilian Soccer Schools Derby

Brazilian Soccer Schools (BSS) is one of the largest grassroots football training organisations in the world. We attribute our success and popularity with children to our structured approach to training and proprietary syllabus of 200+ individual core movements and skills. We teach our players to initially focus on acquiring their individual all round technique and mastery of the ball.  As they mature mentally and physically, their training will start to incorporate tactics as well as the physical and mental chapters of our training programme.

We have never bought into the myth of natural talent or overnight success, what we do believe in is hard work, perseverance and practice. Our philosophy is that through an increased number of training hours involving constant repetition players can refine and improve their skills in all areas of the game.

Socatots Derbyshire – Derby Kids Activities

The Best Derby Kids Clubs and Activities

Socatots delivers football inspired activities for children ages 6 months to 5 years. A completely unique aspect of the programme is active parent participation, we teach everyone and parents work with their children to accomplish each exercise. As many as two million children in nearly 60 countries have already embarked upon a remarkable adventure with Socatots

Who We Are

Socatots uses football as our medium and children attending sessions will develop their skills in this area, however, Socatots is about a great deal more than just developing a child’s affinity with and control of the ball – it is about giving them a well-rounded start in their physical, social and educational development and working on the ‘whole child’.

What We Do

Attending regular classes with other children of a similar age, our students master both motor and social skills, accompanied by their parents and our Socatots coaches. In addition to physical development all of our methods of structured play help children learn numbers, colours, the alphabet and their body parts. At the same time we focus on building their communication skills and self confidence. The result is a balanced child whose motor skills, memory, concentration, and fitness are all enhanced.

Our Mission

Socatots’ mission is to engage children the world over in physical activity, using football as our medium. We use play based learning to promote movement patterns, balance and motor coordination in children. We value and cultivate perseverance, concentration, memory and general cognitive abilities in young people. Most importantly, we ensure that physical activity is fun. Everything we do is centred around helping children develop first as people, then as sports enthusiasts.

Stagecoach Derby is now enrolling new students. Following the lockdown period, the local performing arts school will soon reopen for the Summer term, restarting their acclaimed performing arts lessons. In preparation for schools reopening, and in line with the government guidelines, Stagecoach is introducing a range of safety measures to ensure children are kept safe.

Extracurricular activities have always played an important part in children’s development and it has been a challenging time for children who thrive with a creative outlet. Performing arts can have a positive impact on mental wellbeing in young people, including reducing anxiety, stress and combating depression. It can help to boost confidence and make children feel
more engaged and resilient. Stagecoach encourages children to learn, grow and thrive in a creative environment.

Stagecoach Derby’s principal, Hayley Greenway Yau, commented:

“We will be getting back into teaching the next generation of talent very soon! We are committed to building ‘Creative Courage for Life’, the performing arts have been proven to build confidence and improve broad range of life skills such as public speaking, resilience and empathy. We can’t wait to get back into venues with our students, providing a crucial creative outlet for the next generation of stars in Derby!”

As classes move back into the venue, the safety of students, families and staff is of paramount importance. Safety measures being introduced include social distancing, hand sanitiser in the classroom, assisted movement from one classroom to the other and health and safety signage amongst others. Full information on how Stagecoach will keep children safe can be found here.

Stagecoach is the biggest network of extra-curricular performing arts schools in the UK and is responsible for talent including Emma Watson (Harry Potter, Beauty and the Beast), Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, Fantastic Four) and Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark, Jack the Giant Slayer). The classes are divided across early stages (ages 4-6), main stages (ages 6-15) and further stages (ages 15+) and cover singing, dancing and acting.

During the lockdown period, Stagecoach Derby hosted a range of live lessons called ‘stagecoachathome LIVE’. Just like in-person classes at local venues, the live classes covered singing, dancing and acting disciplines in a safe virtual environment.

For more information about Stagecoach Performing Arts, and to enrol please visit their website or contact your local Principal.

TinyTalk Baby Signing, Toddler Talking and Newborn Communication Workshops

At TinyTalk Newborns: We blend gentle songs and rhymes to encourage learning, bonding and curiosity in babies up to 12 weeks old.

We teach age-appropriate BSL signs for you to use at home with your baby. Tiny babies can respond to the signs you make and eventually make them for themselves, making them an active participant in family life rather than a passive observer.

This is a class for YOU, to help strengthen the bond with your newborn baby, deepen understanding of their behaviours and help your baby transition through the ‘4th trimester’.

What can you expect at a TinyTalk baby class?

Weekly themes such as bedtime, family or a trip to the park give you the signs you need to share baby’s world and daily routine, using British Sign Language (BSL)

An interactive music class featuring well-known nursery rhymes, action songs, specially composed music and instruments

Hands-on sensory activities delight your baby and develop all-round communication skills such as vocalising, listening and taking turns. They also stimulate your baby’s senses, encourage their tracking skills and develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills

TinyTalk is for toddlers too. Our quality classes continue to develop your child’s communication skills whilst you’re having a brilliant time together.

The classes will build toddlers’ speech development, confidence and social skills by singing familiar TinyTalk action songs and reading stories  your child loves.

We will learn a wider range of BSL signs and concepts such as counting, emotions and colours.  And have lots of fun during our language games.

Each class contains a communication-themed activity to support your child’s development.

Classes are currently held across Derbyshire in Ilkeston, Waingroves, Alfreton, Mickleover, Allestree, Chellaston and Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Please do take a look on our website for more information. www.tinytalk.co.uk
