The first of our 6 week trial FREE ‘Stay and Play’ session starts on Tuesday 16th January at 9am – 11am.
This will be a social 2hour drop in session for any parent or guardian with a preschool child to come and enjoy a morning of:
Self led eco crafts
puzzles and jigsaws, lego and duplo
story books (volunteer story teller would be welcomed)
free play/crawling space on padded mats and some toys (limited due to lack of storage space, but please feel free to bring a toy from home that you are happy for others to share)
We will be encouraging a communal vibe of playing together, learning together and having fun together.
We hope you don’t mind that we will need your help with tidying up as a team with your children before you leave the session to help us to maintain the longevity of the group.
We want to offer a safe, warm and sociable place for you to use with your children away from your home environment as this can often be a lonely place particularly through the winter months.
The cafe will be open for hot and cold drinks, snacks, breakfast, brunch and lunches, cakes and ice creams. We will have a winter warmer menu at reduced prices during this session only to make food and drink more accessible. There is absolutely NO OBLIGATION to buy… But, we do ask that you do not bring any of your own food and drinks in to the cafe.
There will be a sign in/out sheet at reception for you to complete so that we can measure how well attended the session is over the 6 weeks. If it is well attended then it will be extended until the end of March. Please rally everyone around to make this a really great group for you all!
There will be feedback/ideas forms for you to complete to let us know your thoughts… We want to help provide what you need… So please do let us know.
You are responsible for your own children during this session
We would welcome any donations of children’s books, small toys, craft items, cushions/bean bags for story times (with removable and washable covers) to help this group to grow and be successful
I look forward to seeing you there xxx
