STORY STORKS: INTERACTIVE STORYTELLING FOR EARLY YEARS

Story Storks are a local social enterprise on a mission to help and inspire early years children to become readers for pleasure. They do this through the magic of interactive storytelling. Their specially written stories enhance children’s early years language skills whilst being so much fun that kids can’t help falling head over heels in love with stories. The two together are proven to be vital skills that kids need to be able to learn to read when they move on to school.

Our workshops take place on Tuesday mornings. Please contact Sarah on sarah@storystorks.co.uk or 07758 449196 to book your free trial.
