Many nurseries charge for such extra-curricular activities as ballet, music, language lessons etc. Beckett House does not. All these extra lessons are free of charge and this has been the policy since Beckett House opened and is in order to ensure that all children are included.
This is our current extra-curricular activity timetable but it changes from time-to-time.
Monday a.m - Creative Dance
This usually involves a story told by the teacher that will be adapted to music and dance for the children to act out.
Tuesday a.m - Music
The music teacher, who usually plays the guitar will sings songs with the children. He will bring various instruments that the children can use and they will all join in the singing.
The music teacher also accompanies the children for the School Nativity Play every Christmas.
(Every other) Tuesday p.m - Indoor Sports
A qualified sports teacher brings various sports equipment for activities such as; ball control, ball and racquet, hurdles, mini golf etc.
Wednesday p.m - Drama
The drama teacher will bring stories for the children and sometimes the children suggest stories in which they will all act.
These involve all kinds of expressive actions for example mime where the children will pretend to be chewing gum, or pulling faces, or helping daddy dig the garden.
