Caboodle Classroom is a subscription service that allows Early Years settings and schools to access a programme of pre-recorded events and workshops with top children’s authors, poets and illustrators.

New events for Early Years (ages 3-6), Primary (ages 7-11) and Secondary (ages 11-16) are released every month during the school year, providing a total of ten events for each age group. The full programme for the year can be viewed in advance to facilitate planning.

Sessions vary in length but range from 30 – 55 minutes, depending on the age group. Events are streamed using Vimeo and can be viewed on any device or PC, provided that you are logged in to your Caboodle Classroom account.

Cost: £499 + VAT per year per age group. The subscription for each age group covers multiple classes.
