Nursery and Early Years

Z-arts offers a substantial programme of creative learning activity for pupils in Nursery and Foundation Stage. We work with schools to design classroom sessions that stimulate and inspire young children, and support their progress across the Early Learning Goals.

Z-arts believes that creative activity in Early Years is the key to unlocking learning in children – growing brain synapses and feeding their natural curiosity. We love sharing our ideas with Early Years practitioners, and working collaboratively with teachers to design playful, exciting sessions that will support and enrich learning and development.

Under 5's

Our creative learning offer includes Z-artist led activities, such as 1 hour workshops, afterschool clubs, and storytelling or drama performances. Our expanding pool of Z-artists are North West based practitioners who work across a range of different art forms and genres, everything from puppet makers and street dancers, to samba drummers and print-makers. All Early Years sessions are delivered by 0-5yrs specialists within our team of freelance Z-artists.

We also programme Under 5’s theatre shows throughout the year, which are available to nurseries and schools for group bookings.
