And we're back. After a rather extended break, LJ and the team are back with their Mandarin Music and Shadow Puppetry playgroups, hosted at our wonderful nursery school in the heart of the City of London - the Barbican. For a limited number of lucky people, we will be opening our doors to showcase the nursery, the activities that the children get up to and how you can be involved.
You'll learn basic Mandarin words, characters and songs, all delivered through the medium of the traditional British nursery rhyme, albeit with the words changed!! Children will be given musical instruments to play along with and we'll encourage you to help baby verbalise through repetition - so get ready to try speaking Mandarin yourself!!
The shadow puppetry segment will follow straight after - housed in our wonderfully cosy sleep room it's a delightfully magical way to wrap up the session through creative story work!
It is important to note that you will be joining an active nursery so please do avoid bringing buggies / prams as we only have limited space for our families - slings and pouches are perfect!
