It is unclear at this point what will happen over the next few months. It is a trying time for everyone and my thoughts are with you as you attempt to manage working from home and home schooling. There are loads of resources online and more are popping up daily. I will try to post a few of my favourite links over the next few weeks. In the meantime don't stress the small stuff, kids are still learning from play and a bit of bordem can trigger flights of imagination and inspire creativity.
The great outdoors has always been my go to balm for the soul and with spring on its way, take the opportunity to get out in the garden (no matter the size), plant a few seeds, notice the flowers and trees starting to bud, listen to the birds chirping away, feed them if you can...
Unfortunetly, due to the implemented health and safety measures, we are unsure whether or not summer camp will be running. I will be monitoring the situation and will get back to you with an update after the Easter holidays.
Keep well and stay safe!
Hello and welcome to the wonderful world of Discovery Company! We are a small company which I founded 12 years ago when we returned to Northern Ireland from the US. At the time, my children were young and needed a way to help them meet friends and get involved. They were completely uninterested in sport or music which were just about the only extra curricular activities on offer. Don't get me wrong, both are great, my children just weren't interested. I was also looking for a job so I thought I could combine doing what I loved with creating unique opportunities for kids.
I have worked in museum education for most of my career - art museums, science centres, historic homes and botanical gardens. I am passionate about learning through experience and having fun while doing it. Hence Discovery Company was born with a series of programmes that integrate concepts of the arts, sciences and enviornment. Our goal is to engage children in fun interactive activities that encourage exploration, experimentation, discovery and of course a little bit of learning!
Things have moved on and there is now a much broader spectrum of opportunities out there. However, I think what we do is still unique! All our programmes are child led so no two programmes are the same. We work with each group to explore topics or conduct experiments within a wider theme that appeal to them.
