Little Sparks

“At Little Sparks, children participate in a wide range of learning experiences, where creativity and exploration is encouraged.”

Little Sparks at Fahan School - for little hands and minds

We are very excited to announce the opening on 1 September of Fahan School’s very own play-based learning program, Little Sparks, for families with children from birth to four years.

Little Sparks will be held every Thursday from 9:00am to 10:15am during School term time, with the program operating in Fahan’s early learning classrooms and facilities. Children and their parents, grandparents or carers are invited to join in and participate in the fun and engaging activities. Families are welcome to come for casual visits or attend each week during term time and there are no fees to attend.

Hosted by our wonderful Fahan staff, Mrs Tania Gath and Ms Fiona Short, families can enjoy participating in the many fun, playful, messy, noisy, active and delightful activities on offer, both indoors and outdoors. Fahan’s enchanting gardens and playgrounds are an immersive experience that our Little Sparks can explore.

“We invite families from near and far to come together to join in our play-based activities and educational experiences; to spend quality time together, connect, and share their experiences with other families.” Fahan Head of Junior School, Mrs Tania Gath.

Children do not need to be enrolled at Fahan School to participate and all children aged 0 – 4 years are welcome to join in. Tea and coffee will be provided for parents.
