What will my child gain from your classes?
Apart from having LOTS of fun, your child is guaranteed to make new friends, improve their communication skills, build their confidence and raise their self esteem.
No exams – why?
At Glasshouse Mini – we believe in Creative Drama, where the child take ownership of their work. This forcing them to use their imaginations and create new, original drama every week. We want children to learn whilst having fun and learning scripts/working towards exams is more pressure in their lives they don’t need.
My child is very shy. I don’t think s/he’ll enjoy it
Glasshouse Mini is for everyone! Children are not forced to take part until they’re ready. Minis are taught from day one to look after new members. Parents have commented that they have seen a massive change in their child in just a few weeks. Amy, herself, (believe it or not) was once a very shy child and wishes there was a Glasshouse Mini when she was little. Hence the reason for starting it up!
Do I stay with my child?
Absolutely not! We believe children can really relax and be themselves and get stuck in when parents/carers are not there. We encourage you to leave asap first session. Don’t worry – they will be fine and will love it. And if they don’t, we can always call you!
Relax, have a bath, get some sleep, do some shopping, grab a coffee and catch up. They’re in safe hands 🙂
How much is it?
Classes are £6 a week for the Mini hourly sessions, or £10 a week for the Maxi and Teen 2 hour sessions.
Fees are paid in advance at the beginning of every half term by BACS. An invoice will be sent out to you.
Alternatively you can choose to set up a monthly standing order if this is easier for you.
There is a 25% discount for each sibling
If, for any reason, you run into financial difficulties, speak to us! There’s always a way…
Can I pay weekly?
Unfortunately not. Glasshouse Mini act on a ‘no cash’ rule to save time at beginning of sessions and for ease for both parents and staff.
What if my child doesn’t like it?
They will! But if not, first class is totally FREE so there’s no rush to make your mind up!
