About the Class
Have your kids grab their favourite pyjamas and join us for 5 evenings of fun with African folktales! They'll listen to stories, act out scenes from the tale and learn about African history, culture and geography. This class will have the kids moving and talking as they act out scenes and eagerly wait to find out how the story ends. Then, they'll probably want to tell you all about the stories they heard as you tuck them into bed. This class is highly rated by parents and kids, and most who join us for one class end up signing up to join us again. You don't want to miss it!
Recommended for kids 5 to 10 years old.

Why Take This Class?
Learning about culture can either help children connect with their roots and appreciate their own history more, or it can help them better appreciate diversity so that they can respectfully interact and engage with people from different backgrounds. Plus, global awareness is highlighted by CEOs and educational experts as one of the most important skills that leaders of tomorrow need to possess in order to be successful in their careers.
Using folktales is a fun way for kids to learn about other cultures because who doesn’t love a good story? The stories in this class are captivating and entertaining, and are most likely like nothing the kids have heard before, which makes the session all that more enchanting.
So, whether you want them to learn about culture or you are just looking for something for them to do, this class is sure to have your children captivated and entertained the whole way through.
What Parents Are Saying
My son absolutely LOVED this class. He was bouncing around, actively participating, and laughing happily through the activities and stories. He also enjoyed recounting the stories to our family later in the day. Delightful. Thank you for inspiring him. - Ondine, Activity Hero Reivew
I didn't watch, but could tell from the next room that my 5-year old was entranced. She recounted the tale of Anansi (sp?) at dinner with great excitemen. - Babette, KidPass Review
