For ages 0 to 3
Parent and Child sessions for 0-3 years old offer a first step into education and independence. Together with their parents children learn essential social skills, such as relating to one another and how to participate in a group. The mood of the morning is intended to be informal, providing a warm, safe and nurturing child-centred space for children and their parents to relax and play together, and for the parents to share with each other the delights and challenges of bringing up children.
Parent & Child Group
When you arrive Vicky and/or Emma (the Parent & Child leaders) will have an activity at the table which is focused for the children. This is optional and children are very welcome to explore the room and play with the toys and books.
After the activity we will sing a tidy up song and will all tidy up the toys and the table. Then we wash hands and have a shared snack with the children and parents. All snacks are nut free, vegetarian and organic. Vegan alternatives are available too. There is coffee, tea and herbal tea with dairy or oat milk available.
There is then outdoor play in the garden where there are trucks, a slide, sandpit and swing. You are of course welcome to stay inside too. After we come in and have circle time with nursery rhymes and a simple puppet show then we say goodbye.
