Lattes & Learners is a fun, educational session for preschoolers run by two experienced primary teachers in a cosy café setting.
Lattes & Learners provides parents with a place where they can enjoy a coffee while their little ones are busy learning!
|Mission||To provide parents with the opportunity to relax at a café, while their children are engaged in hands on, educational activities.|
Up until 2014, we (Cecilia and Jaime) were both dedicated and enthusiastic primary school teachers who loved working with kids. Then along came our beautiful babies who turned our lives upside down and inside out - for the better! With both of us being teachers and new mums, we quickly became close friends.
A few years on and our babies are not so much babies anymore, but curious and inquisitive preschoolers. We are constantly on the lookout for fun, educational activities to do with them, whether it’s counting, learning shapes/colours or letters of the alphabet. Activities that we know as teachers, will help prepare them in their first few years at school.
As we progress (or sometimes stumble blindly) through this crazy journey called parenthood, we are always looking for cafés where we can catch up over a coffee and chat. What we have discovered is that whilst many cafés boast the term ‘kid-friendly’ there is often nothing for children to do. Even when books or toys are provided, our children often grow bored and restless, and our catch ups are never easy or relaxed.
Then one day we had a light bulb moment: “Why not combine the two?” Why don’t we put on both our teacher hat and mum hat to provide a service that is catered to both the mum and child? An educational session for the child, where they are learning and having fun, in a café where the parent can actually enjoy themselves and have a coffee and a chat?
That is how the tiny seed of an idea blossomed into Lattes and Learners.
Lattes and Learners aims to provide preschool aged children (3-5 year olds) with hands-on, educational activities covering concepts such as:
• Fine motor development (strengthening hand and finger muscles)
• Pre-writing skills
• Numeracy concepts, e.g. number, shape, colour, …..
• Literacy concepts, e.g. letters of the alphabet, name recognition
This all takes place in one of our relaxed, café locations. While your child is busy, you get to sit down and enjoy that elusive ho
