Since then we have had young people from all over Berkshire and further afield taking part. If you’re looking for something enriching for your child to do this Summer, Busy Buttons Online Summer School might be just the solution.

HOW OUR ONLINE SUMMER SCHOOL WORKS
Busy Buttons Online Summer School allows children to INTERACT DIRECTLY with each other and their teachers through the live video platform Zoom. Children socialise with their friends and family members, learn new skills and stay busy between classes with daily assignments.
Sessions are scheduled Monday - Thursday, 3 hours each morning. We have a variety of classes offered by creative and experienced professionals covering a plethora of interesting subjects such as History, Science, Nature, Horticulture, Arts and Cooking. Daily movement and mindfulness exercises integrated throughout the day including Yoga, Aikidio, Dance and Pilates.
SMALL CLASSES WITH INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION
Our small classes (8-10) allow young participants to fully engage and receive in depth, individual instructions. Over the past 4 months with over 200 online teaching hours, we have perfected a new approach to online interaction, drawing on experience and ethos of our instructors that they have developed working with young people since 2005.
SOCIALISE and COLLABORATE with your fellow participants!
Our Creative programmes are always about seeing old friends and making new ones. In our Summer School children will be able to communicate and collaborate with the fellow participants as well as discuss each other's works on Zoom. This has been one of the key successes of our very well received online programme since March 2020.
