Barnklubb is Swedish for childrens club and we like to bring a touch of Scandinavia to all our classes and activities.
Our aim is to nurture each child’s unique qualities and potential through play and exploration in a safe, joyful and inspiring environment. Our activities will help grow your child’s cognitive, language and social skills as well as building their self-confidence and independence.
Our weekly schedule is full of fun, creative and educational classes and activities for children from 6 months to 6 years old and we are constantly updating and adding to them.
We keep our class sizes small to make sure each child gets the space and attention they need to be creative and in all our classes our focus is always more on the creative process than the end result.
Our dedicated team is passionate about helping children flourish through play, art and music and we can’t wait to meet you and your little one!
