Explore how to grow ideas and think creatively. Building confidence in sharing ideas with others.
Brilliant Me & My Ideas is designed to help your child:
Develop their imagination & curiosity
Have confidence in their own ideas and how to share them
Learn to develop and nurture an idea
Understand that there are many different ways to be ‘smart’
Have courage and self-belief in their ideas even if others shoot them down
Learn that small ideas can grow into big dreams
This course uses the power of storytelling and creative activities to help children develop their imagination and confidence in their ideas. 'Brilliant Billy the Bunny’ accompanies the children throughout the course to help them navigate their emotions in a fun and supportive environment.
Each day, two stories are shared with the children based around the theme of creative thinking and ideas. Each story is followed by a creative activity which helps the children link the learning from the story to their everyday lives. Daily mindfulness activities are included to help the children learn to manage their emotions.
The stories shared in the Brilliant Me & My Ideas course are based around the following themes:
Developing our imagination and curiosity
What do you do with an idea?
There are many different ways to be ‘smart’
Making an idea into something
Thinking outside of the box
An example story shared on the course is ‘Perfect Square' by Michael Hall. This brilliant book celebrates being able to use our imagination to take a simple square and rearrange it to make something new. After being inspired by the ideas in the book, the children are then invited to create their own pictures using different shapes.

We're pleased to offer this course at Cranleigh Abu Dhabi, an institute of higher education.
These inspirational spaces are ideal for children getting into a new mindset as they develop critical life skills with our Role Models.
All our courses are run in small groups. This ensures our Role Model can get to know each child individually.
To help with this, before the course begins, we ask you to answer a few questions about your child and any specific needs they might have. We will also ask about food allergies, medical conditions and any additional needs that our Role Model needs to know about.
It will only take a minute or two, and it ensures our Role Model has all the information they need to ensure your child has the best experience possible.

Fun and fast paced learning! There will be a mixture of games, challenges, stories and activities all delivered by our Role Models who are experienced with working with this age range of children. There will be breaks built into the structure of the day including time for outside play (weather permitting!) during the lunch break.
Our courses are built on three elements:
Our courses are 3, 4 or 5 days, lasting 5 hours each
You will be with a group of children which will be led by an inspirational Role Model
You can wear comfortable clothes
It will be a fun mixture of games, talking, watching some videos and thinking together with the group
We would love you tell us your ideas and feelings during the activities, being reflective and open to discussions means you'll get so much more from the course or club
We get great feedback from other children who have really enjoyed the experience
We can’t wait to meet you and learn some awesome new skills together!
Our courses follow an education framework developed by teachers, education experts and business leaders. This framework, based on the work of the Partnership for 21st century learning', defines the skills and knowledge that children need to thrive at school, at home and beyond.
Our courses have been written by our Character Education team who are highly qualified educators with over 24 years of teaching experience. Our content emphasises the importance of developing essential key life skills alongside academic attainment, in order to thrive in life.
Our highly experienced team of Role Models are passionate about both education and social & emotional wellbeing. They’re energetic, engaging and curious. They’re adept at combining educational rigour with fun, to create active learning environments that children love. All have been interviewed by our Recruitment Team and are reference and DBS checked.
Yes of course! Contact us for information about multi-buy and referral discounts.
Our courses are not designed only for those who may be struggling with specific life skills. We believe all children can build on these essential skills in order to reach their full potential. Your child may need a boost in confidence, to strengthen their resilience or they may just need an opportunity to go outside of their comfort zone and challenge themselves by working with new people.
