Lockdown has undoubtedly been a testing time. Whilst videoconferencing and juggling family routines with homeschooling have fast become the norm for many of us, our children’s lives have been turned upside down. Unicef estimates that 700 million days of education could be lost this academic year, depriving children of an immersive learning experience and the immeasurable joys of friendship and emotional development that come with attending school.
It’s more important than ever that we take confident but careful steps back to normality for both our and our children’s sake, and thankfully CocoRio is here to help return that incomparable face-to-face interaction 🙂 Allow our wonderful creative facilitators to lead your kids through arts and crafts sessions with funky twigs and leaves found in the local park; expose them to a new language to complement their schooling catchup hours; and let them sing and dance till your neighbours start complaining about the noise (just kidding!) 🙂 Whatever their forte, we are sure to have an expert to fortify their passions and introduce them to new related areas they’ll be excited to try out!
As ever, we aim to be as sustainable as possible with our sessions and any materials used will always be items typically found lying around the house – sometimes the most mundane objects lead to the most creative solutions and drama props! So in lieu of heading abroad, let CocoRio come to you and formulate our own imaginative programme to make these summer holidays the most memorable yet. With a bit of luck, a one-off taster class may lead to a full-on staycation activity camp for your child to enjoy as you take some time to plan your own well-deserved summer treat 🙂
