My child is under 6 years old, can they attend with their older sibling?
No, sorry. The minimum age of this program is set to ensure that children attending have the attention span and fine motor skills to enjoy the program content and length of the day. Younger children tend to fall behind and can end up frustrated which can have an impact on the rest of the class.
