Your 4 year old will grow in confidence with us

Do you have a 4 year old? Are they new to Holiday Camps? A little shy?

We’re set up to help all EYFS children boost confidence, learn skills and make friends at our multi award-winning Holiday Camps.

Earlier this year we were delighted to announce that all children aged 4 are able to attend for the whole day, 8am – 5.45pm.

Over the summer we had an influx of children in pre-school nursery aged 4 all at the start of their musical journey. We made lots of new friends and everyone had a wonderful time.

We are able to offer this at every Holiday Camp and next up is October Half Term!

Here’s why we are a great choice for pre-schoolers…

EYFS focused

Unlike other childcare providers we are fully Ofsted registered, which means we are working in partnership with Ofsted and their guidelines to deliver the highest quality EYFS focused childcare. Read more about what Ofsted registered means and the important ‘Moving On Up’ document for all 4 year olds.

Children flourish at our Holiday Camps

Your child will learn skills, make new friends, and build confidence each day they attend and every element of the day is designed to assist their development and help them fulfil their potential. Read more about our 4 key areas of development.

 

Help them settle – bring a friend for free

If you have a child aged 4 who has not started reception yet and you think they will enjoy the day more with some familiar company why not bring their best friend – for free! All you have to do is give us a call in the office on 0121 296 9204 with both child’s details and we will get them booked on. Simple as that.

Our Holiday Camps for children aged 4-11 are running from 18th February for 5 days with half days from £20. If you’d like to find out more take a look at our Holiday Camps page.

Recommended listening – Christmas Edition!

Listening to music is not only enjoyable but is also beneficial in developing many skills including coordination and self-confidence that will continue to be useful for your child throughout their lives.

Every month, we are here to help you inspire your child with some season-appropriate classical pieces.

This month, The Strings Club Head Office team has gathered for you the a selection of the best festive pieces of music alongside some fun facts and links to YouTube and Spotify to get us all in the mood for the mood for Christmas!

The Nutcracker

Did you know that despite it’s huge fame now, the original ballet was a commercial flop?! But Tchaikovsky’s 20 minute ‘suite’ extracted from The Nutcracker was, and always has been, hugely popular, and it has become one of his most famous compositions. Have a listen to the Waltz of the Flowers on Spotify or on YouTube.

Carol of the Bells

This Christmas classic might ring a lot of bells for all you listeners. Is that because you are a Home Alone fan or a Metallica fan?! Composed by Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych with lyrics from Peter J. Wilhousky, this song was originally a Ukranian folk chant but enjoys huge popularity appearing on films, TV shows and of course at major metal gigs across the world! Have a listen on Spotify and on YouTube.

Winter Wonderland

As if you weren’t feeling Christmassy enough already, here comes a giant of a Christmas tune. Written in 1934 Bernard (music) and. Smith (lyricist), it has been recorded by over 200 different artists. But we’re quite partial to the King of Cool, Dean Martin’s own rendition (with it being so cold out there it is probably more fitting too!). Have a listen on Spotify and on YouTube.

We’re here to help your child #LearnToPlay violin

Learning to play an instrument is great fun. It’s exciting. It’s rewarding and inspiring. There is nothing like it!

However, many dusty instruments sat in bedrooms and attics will also bear testament that sometimes it can be tricky to master.

There are lots of things which need to be in place to ensure it goes well. It requires a supportive and positive learning environment to ensure all the energy from the student is nurtured and well directed.

We’re here to help

Does your child show in interest in learning an instrument? Take a look at our YouTube channel, it’s a fun introduction to ukulele, guitar, violin and cello.

Inspire your child for free, only at THSH in December

Our Discovery Days are the perfect way to ignite your child’s love of music. And thanks to our special partnership with Town Hall Symphony Hall in Birmingham there are even more opportunities for children to start their musical journey.

We introduced Discovery Days in 2016 to enable families to help their children explore stringed instruments. And we did that because being parents ourselves we understand that choosing an instrument for your child to learn can be a difficult and expensive process.

That’s why at a Discovery Day your child will be able to try out two new instruments of their choice and experience two 20 minute lessons – all for free!

And the wonderful Town Hall Symphony Hall are hosting the events in their iconic and historic building in Birmingham, bringing music to more children than ever before.

INSPIRATIONAL AND INTERACTIVE

Taking place at central venues across the country our Discovery Days provide a wonderfully interactive introduction to stringed instruments, an memorable and inspirational performance from our professional teachers, and two 20 minute lessons on ukulele and guitar.

Want to get involved? Here’s what’s coming up next:

TOWN HALL SYMPHONY HALL

Saturday 1st December, 11am – 12pm

Places fill up very quickly at these events so please book asap. We look forward to seeing you there soon!

Looking for a rewarding career change?

Running your own multi award-winning business with The Strings Club could be the new start you’re looking for.

It is quite often the case that the end of the year is a time for reflection and a time for looking at what the new year may have in store for us.

How many of us will be drawing up New Year’s Resolutions? I will, that’s for sure!

My main one being to focus on myself a bit more – as we all know what it feels like to be juggling many plates at one time I’m sure.

IN SEARCH OF A CAREER THAT’S PROFITABLE, FLEXIBLE AND REWARDING?

Finding the perfect life balance of work and family with only 24 hours in a day and 7 days in a week is quite tough sometimes!

And a lot of us will be deciding that a career change is needed in the new year. Something which still brings in a good income, works around the family’s needs and is also very rewarding too.

MAKE 2019 THE YEAR THAT WORKS FOR YOU

I became inspired to franchise The Strings Club through meeting franchisees who have forged highly successful careers for themselves, all built around their particular needs. Want to work evenings when kids are in bed? No problem. Finish for the day at 3pm so you can head to pick up your children from school? You’re the boss!

In all of these situations you get out what you put in but the point is that you are able to choose when and where you put the effort in too. Running your own multi award-winning business with The Strings Club really will prove a rewarding career change for you in the new year.
