We meet between 9:30am and 11:30am every Tuesday during term-time and cater for the youngest babies & toddlers up to 3 years of age.
Our group can reach up to thirty babies and toddlers, meaning that this is a great place for young children to develop and interact. It’s also lovely to see lots of the parents and carers creating friendships which can last a lifetime.
The session begins with an informal time for play, as we have loads of different teddies, toys, blankets, and mobiles for the children to use. We have a range of toys to suit every age. There are also jigsaw puzzles and books to enjoy. Following this, our team lead a nursery rhyme session with instruments, and we have a short prayer before snack time. The children are given a small plate of food and a drink, with the adults enjoying a cup of tea/coffee and a biscuit.
Each year, our parents and guardians involve themselves with out Samaritan’s Purse Shoe Box Appeal. This charity encourages us to fill a shoebox wrapped with Christmas paper, which they send to areas less fortunate so children can enjoy a Christmas present.
We hold Christmas celebrations, which include dressing up and nativity stories. The ‘Instant Nativity’ tells the story of Jesus’ birth in an interactive, child-friendly way. Several of our Church members come to watch and support the children. This Christmas, Mother Christmas arrived to distribute gifts and books kindly donated by Sainsburys plc. The session was finished with a party meal consisting of pizza, fruit, savouries and sweets.
We are always thankful to our loyal team of volunteers; Rodney, Marilyn, Mair, John, Marie, Dave T, Dave E, Rebecca, Gemma, Susan and Jill. They give their talents and time, engaging with the families and ensuring everyone has a fun morning.
Our prayer is that God will continue to bless our community.
