About

Kids Club English has developed out of a combined passion for stories, language, making things and working with young children. The aim is to make it easier for teachers, parents and other childcare providers to engage their children with language in a fun, enjoyable and effective way.

My name is Fiona Hunter and I’m the founder of Kids Club English. I design and run courses for young children learning English as a foreign language. These courses put stories, play and craft at the centre (See Methodology for why this is so effective). The result is an integrated approach that combines total language immersion with activities and crafts that can develop topic based vocabulary.

All Crafts and Printables include detailed activity suggestions to help teachers and child carers use them most effectively for language acquisition and put them in the context of the complete lesson. I have also collated the best song and storytelling videos out there to make it really easy for parents to supplement what their child hears in the classroom. As a teacher, I understand how important it is to find what you’re looking for quickly, whether in the classroom or planning, so I’ve made sure that videos can be easily accessed by story or topic.

I hope you and the kids enjoy the site! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or feedback. I’d be really happy to hear from you.

 This area is in development and will be added to over the coming months. You can find free powerpoint games to use in the classroom and links to useful websites. In the future, we will be adding many more activity ideas for both parents and teachers.


As an English teacher, I have designed this site thinking about language, BUT all the activities are suitable for children whose first language is English. In fact, the stories, the songs and many of the other resources are created by native speakers for native speakers. It is simply that they are also a rich source of language for second language acquisition too. See our methodology section for more information.
