Little Experts Workshops


The Little Experts program was created to give older students a chance to work on more advanced skills and techniques, while still having heaps of fun! You can think of Little Experts as level two of the Speak Up Holiday Workshop Syllabus. These workshops run over two mornings or afternoons, or throughout the day on Wednesday.

What happens during the workshops?

Speak Up Studio’s Little Experts workshops are longer workshops, designed to extend student’s skills in a particular area through fun, engaging, challenging content and activities.

What age group are these workshops for?

These school holiday workshops are designed for primary school students in grade 3 to 6. Grade 7 and 8 students are welcome, but content may be somewhat easy for them. For younger children, we recommend our Short and Sweet Program.

How does the day run?

Little Experts workshops are full day workshops and run from 9 am – 3.30pm. Students will have a morning tea and lunch break during the workshops and will be supervised at all times.

What do we do about food?

Supervised snack breaks for Little Experts workshops are held at appropriate times throughout the day. Please send your child along with plenty of healthy food for the day. We would appreciate if you could avoid packing nuts. There is an on site cafe at the studio if you wish to purchase extra food.

Can parents stay and watch?

We prefer if parents do not stay to watch the workshops as your presence can be a little distracting for our students and teachers. We would love to welcome you to watch the performance at the end of certain workshops, and we promise to share lots of photos and videos at the end of each day. Thanks for understanding!

Where are the workshops held?

Little Experts workshops are held at our Red Hill Studio only.

What should my child bring and wear?

Students should wear comfortable clothes. Dressing up is encouraged! Please send your child with a water bottle so we can ensure they stay hydrated throughout the day.

How are children supervised?

Students will be signed in upon arrival, and will be supervised until they are collected at the end of the day. All breaks are supervised. Please let us know the name of the person who will be picking up your child when you sign them in. We are unable to release students into the care of an adult who has not been listed on our attendance sheet.

How much do workshops cost?

Little Experts workshops run for six hours and cost $120 each. Students are welcome to attend individual workshops, or book in for full week.

How do I register for workshops?

All bookings can be made via the parent portal. Credit Card payment is required at time of booking.
