Meet Creative Beetroot

Our Ethos & Why
  • Everyone has creativity in their souls, and being able to dabble in our imaginations, explore our creativity is a beautiful tool to grow within ourselves, to help us understand and make sense of our world.

  • We strongly believe that a healthy body goes hand in hand with a healthy mind. We encourage self positive speech, and help our children become aware of their thoughts and feelings to help them make better conscious decisions.

  • We look at solutions, problem solving, and how we are able to work together as team. To think out of the box, creating a Growth Mindset. 

  • We show that we all have things not go our way or bad days, that we all experience different emotions, and all of this is totally normal and okay to go through, we help give meaning to how things come our way in which we might not like or want or have planned. It is how we choose to behave towards it, react to it. We have the choice with this.

  • Our Motto "We Uplift! We Empower! We Embrace! 

Our Classes for our 'Beets'
  • Our Classes range from 18months of age to 12years of age. 

  • We offer an Extramural Program at schools during school hours. 

  • And Studio Classes - Out of Schools.

  • We Explore: A wide range of the creative arts with our 'Beets', from performing arts, theatre, acting to hand-puppetry, as well as arts & crafts, and story-telling. 

  • All our programs are focused on uplifting and empowering by embracing and providing our children with tools to create a positive development regarding their emotional and social skills.

  • We include educational aspects, art theory and life skills into our lessons to facilitate a comprehensive approach to broadening the children’s minds, skills and talents.

  • Each level focusses on emotions and social situations. From basic emotions to more complex ones depending on each level.

  • We help with identifying these emotions first, and then we build on these with understanding and how to express themselves in an appropriate way.

  • We look into social situations and problem solving skills in resolving emotional and intimate issues. Using lessons from the Big Life Journal & Story Books.

All Platforms of The
Creative Arts 
  • There are many different types of art therapy that are beneficial to us. Creative Arts is a way for us to somehow express ourselves without fear of judgement. Through this, we are encouraged in our own way and own pace to interpret and eventually discuss what we have created, which in turn helps with any healing process or growth that we go through. 

  • Everyone of all ages, all back grounds is capable of creating some form of art. It is engaging on many different levels with interests and our natural curiosity which helps us to learn, grow and see things in different ways.

  • Creative Arts helps us to a self-discovery, self-expression, and self-control.

  • It is non-threatening, it is fun, positive, and creates a safe environment for all of us to release our emotions and thoughts positively and creatively. 

Curriculum Content


'Since starting Creative Beetroot, Ethan loves pointing out the emotions of characters both on the television and in books. From the tone and facial expression, he can tell us who is happy, sad or angry. 


The personal touches like a certificate and gift at the end of the term show the care Jacqueline puts into her classes and “little beets” and the regular updates and termly report allow us to keep track of Ethan’s progress.


Ethan is excited to tell me every week that he’s been to “Jacky Beetroot”'

  • Develops Communication and Social Skills

  • Hand Puppets are an ideal platform for developing speech and listening skills.

  • Children will often communicate easier through the use of puppetry, giving them the confidence to express their ideas and feelings.

  •  Children using a puppet on their hands have the freedom to explore new personalities and switching these off again, and at the same time are able to broaden their own selves in the process.

  • Scary animal hand puppets like lions and snakes or shy ones such as a kitten can help children master uncomfortable feelings.

  • Puppet play provides lovely opportunities to understand their world and empower them with self-awareness by working out fears and frustrations.



Hand Puppetry & Flannel Story Telling

  • Drama/Theatre - Through drama we are able to find ways to express feelings that might be uncomfortable expressing, and in doing so this builds understanding of one self and others around us, and builds up our self awareness and confidence. This also creates team building, how to problem solve and to create solutions within themselves and in social situations.

  • Writing/Words -  Here we focus on the written word for growth, self healing and finding ways to understand and describe emotions and of one self.

  • Play/Props  - Here we use play techniques to resolve inner conflict, social situations and self healing.

Theatre! Acting! Dress Up!



Emotion & Social Skills 

  • We help our 'beets' identify their emotions, and we give understanding to these where we include social situations that can relate to our emotions. We give tools of the how to help with social situations. We do all of this through story-telling, hand puppetry, books, theatre & Art! 


  • We help give understanding that our minds are meant to think, this is what our minds are made to do, so instead of trying to stop our thoughts... we encourage to become an observer of our thoughts, where we can see how our thoughts can come and go quite easily, that also our thoughts are connected to our emotions, and that the more aware we become of our thoughts, and how we feel, and of our surroundings... We can then also make more conscious better decisions and actions in our daily lives.
