  • About

     

    Hands on science. Inspiration for your little explorers.

     

    We are running a class for 2-5 years olds that uses science concepts to create a fun, entertaining yet educational class for you and your children…

     

    Launching rockets, designing skyscrapers and bug hunts in the great outdoors will let their imagination run wild.

     

    Our promise – you will all get something out of it – from your pre-schooler investigating the world around them as well as you and daddy (or mummies) back at home too!!

  • Bring your friends along

    and start your own science kit

    How does it work?

    We have magnetic wands at the moment

    Even if they cannot join the class at the moment, you can still take part. We will just send you the science gadget. After all, our ambition is to inspire kids and parents to use science more and nurture our little natural curiosity.

  • Our story

    We believe in nurturing children's curiosity.

    Our vision

    Science is not often enough given its true justice - it is an amazing way to experience and understand how things work.

     

    So we want to create hands on science sessions for children under 5; to discover, experiment and explore through science. All of this filled with fun and laughter. We are also mums of young children, understand how wonderful and self satisfactory it is to observe them, be amazed by their development and simply having fun with them! We know that if a class gets repetitive, we (mums) lose interest which is why our sessions are a fun learning time for all. That's the idea!

     

    It also gets more challenging when you have more than one child to entertain, so we have adapted the sessions to ensure younger siblings could enjoy it too - a unique way to have fun all together.

     

    Come along and experience it for yourself!

    The team behind the idea :)

    Hannah

    Our science teacher... and mummy!

    Hi, I'm Hannah and watching my young son and daughter explore the world around them I came up with the idea of science classes for little ones. I'm sure you've all experienced your children stopping at ant trails and ladybirds or finding leaves that look like an elephant! They are constantly asking 'why' and want to know how the world around them works. I want to pass on my passion for science to kids from an early age. With my teaching background my head is full of ideas of ways that we could do simple experiments and hands-on activities with the under fives. I have seen how much my kids like simple experiments, messy play, dressing up, craft activities, songs, dancing and stories. We can use all these ways to engage children with science concepts. You never know, you might learn something too!

    Sophie

    Our Everything Else Officer ;) ... and mummy too!

    Hi, I'm Sophie. I love inspiring people and being inspired by others and by my kids. It is a magical thing and makes me alive.

    Since I became a mum a few years ago, I re-discover the world through the eyes of my daughters and this is a beautiful world. Everything is new, everything is interesting and of interest and they want to try it all. Something I always said I wanted to pass onto my kids was “curiosity” – it can make any world better, it can create adventures, it can open up new doors, it can solve problem and more importantly it is fun!

    This is why, when Hannah mentioned WhooshPop, I jumped in straight away – we inspire little ones and grown-ups to be curious and exploring the world in a safe and fun environment, which fit perfectly with how I would like my girls to be. Enjoy life with your little ones!

  • FAQ's

    About the class

    • How long is the class?  45 min - it is the ultimate time to keep children engaged and concentrated.
    • My child doesn’t sit for very long, not sure the class is for me? This is not a lesson as such. Classes are packed with short and engaging activities – we use stories and physical activities so that everyone gets something out of the class.
    • Will my child get messy? Some of the activities can get messy, as we like to play with slime, make things erupt, experiment with paint, clue and mud. We always warn you in our pre-class email if we might get messy.
    • Is it drop off class or does the parent stay? The parent joins in, which all adds to the fun, you wouldn’t want to miss those WOW faces and you might get inspired too :)
    • Can I bring my younger child? Yes, it is absolutely fine. Just book an "under 2's" (free) ticket when you sign up to the class. Younger children are under the responsibilities of their parents or carers as we might use some pieces of equipment. 
    • Can I book individual classes? You can book a one-off trial class and the you book for the remaining of the term.
    • Can I get a refund for the class if I miss it? For the activities that can be done at home, we will bring the material for take away for you to try. You are also welcome to join the class on another day of the week if you are available. 
    • Can I still join if the term has started? Of course.  We will simply prorata the cost to the number of classes remaining in the term.
    • Do you offer holiday session? We are primarily term time only but do occasionally run holiday sessions.

    About the venue

    • Are there toilets? Yes
    • Where are the classes? During the summer, we use the beautiful natural reserve at Pensford Field and during the other terms, we stay warm at the Pavilion Cafe & Clubhouse, North Sheen Recreation Ground.
