What it’s all about
One of the things parents and children love about our clubs is that there’s always plenty of equipment and activities to entertain everyone! At Sparks, we promote a culture of inclusion and it’s great to see children of varying ages and abilities getting together, interacting with one another and enjoying activities as a group.
However, we believe in giving children the freedom to choose how they play and spend their leisure time, so Taningua provides an alternative environment that is especially designed for bigger Sparks.
Away from the little ones, the older children are free to explore more challenging activities, sophisticated cooking classes and more intricate crafting tasks. Day trips are also a little more adventurous, from climbing the rigging of the SS Great Britain to ceramic painting at Flying Saucers pottery cafe.
In 2012, we asked the children to come up with a name for this exciting new club, and Taningua was settled upon because it means ‘Teenager’ in Icelandic. An ice cool name for an ice cool club.
