Little House of Science – Classes for Curious Minds

When I first discovered my love for Science I had just moved to secondary school. I don’t honestly remember doing any science at primary school. It was a shame because it became my favourite subject. All the way through secondary school and on to A Levels where I studied Biology, Chemistry and Physics. 

Back when I was small there wasn’t opportunities to send children to science classes. Now I have found you can send your children to the Little House of Science and their Classes for Curious minds. 
Children are natural born scientists and it is never too early to start educating them about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Both girls and boys are curious to learn about the world around them and how things work. 
We see this from the moment children start to talk. They observe and ask questions. My 5 month old baby girl is already interested in everything around her. It’s funny to see her frown and stare at her toys taking it all in.
Children love to ask questions such as why is the sun so bright? How did the stars get into the sky? How do planes fly and cars drive? How are bridges built? How does the fabulous brain work? The questions are endless.

What is the Little House of Science?

Little House of Science offers project based weekly after- & in- school maths and science workshops for children ranging from 3 to 11 years of age as well as experiential sessions for babies and toddlers from 6 months.

They aim to make the classes fun. The little scientists get hands-on learning sophisticated maths and science, instead of just watching us make things go ‘pop’ and ‘bang’.They want to help contribute to children’s understanding of how nature and the world around them works. 

Their reputation has grown quickly as a company and they have a serious interest in teaching the children – making Little House of Science a better choice for parents.

Little House of Science has set up an annual Young Scientist Award together with the Institute of Physics, run the kids section at the annual Royal Society Summer Exhibition and works together with the Science Museum in London hosting joint guided tours.

They run a franchise as well which is perfect for people looking to work with children and help little future scientists.

The Classes:

Little Discovery - Little House of Science



Little Discovery – Age 6-12, 12-24 months

Little Science - Little House of Science

Little Science – 3-4, 4-7 and 5-8 years


Little Science offers weekly in-school or after school workshops for children aged 3-8 years. These classes help lay the foundations for future academic  progress. The children will learn about problem solving, decision making and how to process information.

Big Science - Little House of Science

Big Science – 8-11 years


Big Science classes are in-school or after school workshops and focus on expanding the knowledge learned in the eariler classes.




Here is a little bit about Little House of Science:

Little House of Science was founded by three ladies in London in 2014, (Veronika Covington, Liliana Crachilova and Elisabeth Keck), who saw the ever growing demand from children wanting to learn more about how the world works! Children who love science and are inspired by it. This led to the birth of Little House of Science.

Little House of Science Founders -first day
Denise O’Mara is joining the team, having spent her career and education in science and engineering with her last 10 years working in the industry/Engineering sector in the South of England. With two young children, aged 5 and 3, she is ready to bring Little House of Science to the children and families in the area of Southampton.
Denise is passionate about Science and education and has always been a big advocate of getting children interested in Science from an early age, so they can have a positive attitude towards maths and science in the later stage of their development.
Where Can You Find Classes?



You can find Little House of Science classes in and around London in various locations and also now in Hampshire. They have a timetable with lots of different classes throughout the Summer, Autumn and also Holiday Workshops and parties that they run. 

Little House of Science can also be found on FacebookTwitter and Youtube

Are you keeping your Child off School in protest of the SAT’s for 6-7 year olds?

I have woke up to headlines in the news of parents keeping their primary school children home from school today all across the country in protest of SAT’s for 6-7 year olds. They want the government to scrap all SAT’s for 6-7 year olds.
I don’t have a child in that age bracket, mine is still only 3 months old, but since becoming a mother these sort of topics really interest me now. What will the education system be like in 6 years time for my child? 
sat's - education system - exams

My point of view is that exams are all a part of learning. You go to school to learn don’t you? Well after learning segments of Information tests are naturally the next part. 
Some parents are saying that it’s making their children anxious, stressed and feeling sick and they don’t want to go to school. 
Fair enough. Maybe it’s the parents getting all worked up about the SAT’s and it’s rubbing off on their kids. Putting pressure on them to do well. I honestly don’t know as I am not in that situation. This is my opinion. 
I remember being at school and having weekly tests at that age. What’s the difference between SAT’s and a test that the teacher makes up? Maybe the SAT is on a formal paper, but a test is a test and should be treated the same in the eyes of a 6-7 year old. 
sat's - education system - exams
Let the kids have the experience of taking SAT’s surely it will help them to understand the system further on in their education, and make the next ones easier. Treat it as a learning experience. At that age does it matter if your 6 year old gets every question right? Or any correct at all. The whole experience should be made fun. They are only 6 year olds after all.
What are your thoughts on SAT’s for 6 and 7 year olds?
