Mothers & Toddlers
(Ann, Margaret, Angela, John, Heather, Barbara & Doreen) – ‘Mothers & Toddlers’ Leaders
Tuesday & Thursday Toddlers meet from 9:30 – 11:00am during Term Time.
About 15-20 Mums, Dads, Grandparents and carers attend every week. From those a couple of weeks old to those who leave us at 3+ for Nursery School, there is a warm welcome each time we meet.
We begin with open play (prams, toys, push along vehicles or jigsaws and other puzzles). Followed by story-time when all children are encouraged to sit in chairs for 5-10 minutes to listen to an appropriately delivered short Bible-story. Mums sit behind the chairs and this helps develop concentration in the toddlers.
Then, Drink and biscuit, followed by numerous activities. Something different most weeks, lego bricks, colouring, craft, dough shapes, Happy Birthday time or mini assault course. “Up the steps, down the slide, through the tunnel and out the other side”.
Coffee and tea are provided for adults.
No charge is made but a collection is taken.
