Mini Professors

A fun new science class for pre-schoolers has come to Barnes! Nansi Eggleton and Sari Daly already run very popular Baby Sensory classes in the area, and have now launched a new programme – Mini Professors – the first science program that has been designed specifically for pre-school children. Classes started May 2017 in Barnes and Teddington, and you can book online.

Mini Professors logoMini Professors is an exciting programme which opens up a whole new world of scientific adventure to pre-school children. Each 40-minute session follows a set format and is packed full of experiments, singing, and stories, making science fun and enjoyable for pre-school children. With 72 different topics spanning two years, children learn something new each week, investigating unusual subjects such as germs, chromatography and making clouds , as well as all-time favourites such as dinosaurs and space. The sessions provide a warm environment in which the children can explore and marvel at science, and also learn many life skills such as asking questions, taking turns, sharing and socialising. They get to wear their own mini lab coats and learn about the basic principles of scientific experimentation, whilst having loads of fun and generally getting stuck in.

Mini ProfessorsThe Mini Professors programme has been designed specifically for 2-4 year olds, with separate sessions for 2-3 year olds and 3-4 year olds. A typical session starts with a welcome song, and then incorporates a story and two-minute bespoke video about the topic of the day. It’s lots of fun and there is normally a ‘I didn’t know that!’ moment for the parents too. There are two hands-on experiments where the Mini Professors are encouraged to join in (and maybe get messy!) – all the activities are concise and interactive, catering for the many different learning styles and keeping the little ones’ attention. Children love to get involved in the experiments and it’s a great opportunity to prepare them for pre-school and school. The grownups are also encouraged to join in, and can easily carry on the learning experience at home with their children.

Mini ProfessorsClasses take place on Wednesdays at Barnes Methodist Church, Station Road SW13 0NH, and on Thursdays at Teddington Baptist Church, Church Road TW11 8PF. For more information or to book, you can take a look at the Mini Professors website. Experience the fun of learning science at Mini Professors!
