A Message from Rachel

Hi everyone! My name is Rachel Simpson and I have brought The Creation Station Nottingham South to Trowell Garden Centre!

The Creation Station is at Trowell Garden Centre running Little Explorers sessions for ages 14 months to 5 years at 10am every Tuesday morning during term time. From September I will also be running classes on a Thursday morning.

Sessions last 50 minutes and include two fun and messy art and craft activities and a circle time with singing and games. All sessions are planned around the early years' foundation stage curriculum.

Children are provided with splash suits and painting overalls.

Here is a review from Sam, one of the mums who has been bringing her daughter Ella every week since I started in January:

Creation Station at Trowell Garden Centre

Such a fun class and amazing value for money. Ella and I really enjoy coming each week and I love watching her get more confident and creative each week. The things we make are really fab. Only problem is I'm running out of space on my fridge/walls for all the creations!!

Sessions are £5 each but all first Explorers are entitled to a BOGOF offer: pay for the first session get the second for free! After this I offer half term bookings, or pay as you go options are available. All Creation Station customers receive 10% off all the delicious food and drink in the cafe at Trowell. As a bonus, the garden centre has a huge aquatic centre where you can visit the beautiful fish! They also have a very friendly resident cat called Gnasher who sometimes joins in!
