What to expect
We aim to educate, engage and entertain young children in a way that enables them to reach limits that they wouldn't have known they could.
We've created a number of packages that we hope will inspire your young minds and support staff in growing their confidence in the magic of engaging storytelling.
Our packages can take place at the Rainbow Factory or at your nursery/preschool.
*We can also take our activities outside into our Secret Garden during the summer months.

We have a choice of packages to choose from:
