Devonport KidSprite

15-05-2017

Our 9 year old daughter has been going to KidSprite since the start of the year and absolutely loves it. She has been to a number of the holiday programmes there and really enjoyed herself, so we thought we’d try the after school programme. It’s been great! What we really love about KidSprite is it’s such an energetic, positive and caring environment and the teachers are great role models. For us knowing that our daughter is learning new skills in a wide range of areas is a bonus and it’s all at the same place! Not only is she keeping fit but she is also learning drama and Spanish. What has been really great are the cooking classes every afternoon. Emily helps the children create the most beautiful recipes out of organic, quality ingredients. Our daughters skills and confidence in the kitchen has come a very long way.
