Charlene Kidd, Owner of Mini Professors Southampton (and Toddler Sense Southampton)

I have been running Mini Professors since May 2015. As soon as I heard about Mini Professors I had to do it! I love how it is curiosity driven and encourages children to find out for themselves. I have always loved science from a young age, but I never believed that I could combine it with my main passion which is working with children. My aim is to make science fun and to see children become as enthused and excited about science as I am.

I do have the best jobs in the world between being a mum of two children, Finlay aged 6 and Ailsa aged 5 and running Toddler Sense and Mini Professor Classes!! I love how it is curiosity driven and
encourages children to find out for themselves. 

My previous experience before starting Mini Professors -

 I have been working with children since 1996, working previously as a nursery nurse before working my way up to nursery manager. I then took the opportunity to be involved in the roll out of Children's Centres within Hampshire, before later becoming manager of one. When Hampshire County Council cut the funding to and Children's Centres were merged, I took redundancy in order to spend more time with my two children. Toddler Sense then gave me the opportunity to use my skills and expertise in a new and exciting way, whilst balancing my family life and later starting Mini Professors 2 years later as my children got a bit older.

Charlene Kidd is Franchaise Holder of Mini Professors Southampton.

At Mini Professors, we aim to inspire a generation. We believe that science should be accessible to all. As with languages, children can easily absorb and learn science from an early age. That is why we endeavour not to dumb down scientific terminology but explain scientific principles in simple terms with fun experiments. We encourage our Mini Professors to explore for themselves and interact as much as possible. Our classes are suitable for children from 2 years old up until and while they are 5 years old.

We also offer Mini Professors Parties for Children 2 to 7 years.

If you are looking for fun and exciting science classes for you and your child to enjoy together, please contact Professor Charlene. Email  or phone 07889 259995.
