Starcatchers is a pioneering organisation that specialises in performances and creativity for babies, toddlers and young children aged 0-5 and their parents and carers in Scotland.

We believe that Scotland’s youngest citizens should be able to engage with, and participate in, high quality performances and creative experiences that are made by exceptional artists who understand the needs of this unique audience.

Our work is designed to nurture young children’s creative and cognitive development, sparking their imaginations.

On this website you can find out about the work that we do in communities, in venues and with Early Years workers across Scotland.


Starcatchers is committed to developing high quality performances and creative experiences for babies and young children aged 0 -5 years and their grown ups in communities across Scotland.

As a registered charity, we rely on the generous support of individuals, businesses, trusts and foundations to deliver our programme of activity. As our programme grows, we aim to continue to provide community-focused activities children and adults regardless of circumstance or background.

Your support will help us make a positive difference to the lives of babies, toddlers, young children and their families. Any gift, large or small, will help us to continue to develop exciting and innovative projects across Scotland.
