Young at Art and Belfast Harbour representatives visited the Country Playgroup for some pre-festival play-time this week.

 

Young at Art, creator's of the Belfast Children's festival (7-14th March) and Jenni Berkley from Belfast Harbour Commissioners enjoyed play-time with Country Playgroup, Ballymena pre-schoolers Ethan Moore and Anna Millan this week.  

The playgroup regularly enjoy the prop-box supplied by Young at Art, which was supported by Belfast Harbour and Arts & Business NI.  

Young at Art Education Officer Emma Berkley commented: 'The support we have received from Belfast Harbour and Arts & Buisness NI has been essential to the Young at Art Education Programme. It has allowed us to support teachers with our ‘All About Plays’ Drama resources and to offer accompanying training to teachers to assist them in developing the use of Drama in the classroom. This makes a very real difference to children’s lives by adding creativity, imagination and fun to the experience of learning.'
