We have been helping children through this strange time.
As we teach in groups of no more than 8 children. This helps our expert tutors to really get to know each individual child, help guide and nurture them as well as building group skills and encouraging friendships.
Our small class sizes helped us to immediately move our weekly classes online, with no change to time and day, lesson format, class mates or their tutors. Children have already had so much change, we wanted to change as little as possible!

It has been so important to us that children kept some kind of familiarity & consistency with their weekly lessons. At Little Voices they are used to receiving such focused attention in a safe setting and can completely be themselves! We didn’t want them to lose this, so made the decision to continue, using online lessons! We really had no idea what our online lessons would look like! But we are so happy to say 17 weeks on, and pupils are still attending and absolutely love it! We have been overwhelmed by parents comments and feedback.

 

“Without putting too fine a point on it, Little Voices put more effort into staying in contact, planning and providing lessons online during lockdown, than my daughter’s school did! It was fantastic, well done Ellena and team”

Little Voices has kept us going through “lockdown”. I, as a parent, can see the effort Ellena and Kerry have put into the lessons and its definitely lifted spirits in our house during and after the lessons

Children are the most important thing to us. Our regular lessons help keep a little bit of normality in their little lives and create a little bubble away from the crazy world to talk about their feelings and have a good sing song! Performing Arts is a great way for children to express themselves, have a sense of routine, encourage team work and  keep their minds sharp!
To truly show how unbelievably proud we are, each pupil received a unique hand delivered Little Voices medal last week, for powering through the 17 weeks of online lessons! We had these specially made for each pupil! This medal represents the resilience, bravery and determination each pupil showed through lockdown!

Our lessons usually run during term time, however we have made the decision to continue throughout summer with weekly online workshops. We feel children (and parents) need us more now than ever! We would love to spread the word and help nurture any child across the Fylde!
