Our work with children

Children's imaginations run wild through creative play in Barrhead!

Last week saw Impact Arts begin a new block of creative play sessions for children in Barrhead, aimed at sparking children's imaginations and getting them outdoor and active.

Our Creative Play Rangers Natalie, Tara and Sarah visited St. Mark's Primary School and Arthurlie Family Centre, telling tales of swamps, forrests and Gruffalos to get the children's imaginations going, get them exploring their environment and - most importantly - having lots of fun, whatever the weather!

These sessions - taking place after school and nursery - are entirely free. It's part of East Renfrewshire Council’s Early Years Places to Play initiative and funded by East Renfrewshire Early Years.

The sessions are running every Tuesday in November 2017:

St. Mark's Primary School

  • Tuesday 14th November 2017: 3pm - 4pm
  • Tuesday 21st November 2017: 3pm - 4pm
  • Tuesday 28th November 2017: 3pm - 4pm

Arthurlie Family Centre

  • Tuesday 14th November 2017: 4pm - 5pm
  • Tuesday 21st November 2017: 4pm - 5pm
  • Tuesday 28th November 2017: 4pm - 5pm

The sessions at St. Mark's are for Primary 4s, while the sessions at Arthurlie are aimed at 3-4 year olds.
