Parent and Child Programme
The Parent and Child playgroup programme provides a morning of fun filled activities for you to enjoy with your child. The programme currently runs 5 mornings a week, activities include art and crafts, sensory play, interactive playtime. Toys that encourage the development of fine and gross motor skills are available as well as building activities and a dramatic play corner to encourage role play and imagination.
We meet with a hello song, followed by free play, outdoor time, snack time, free play again and end our morning with a group circle time. Circle time varies day to day but can include, singing, dancing, music time, story time, parachute time, bubbles and finally a goodbye song.
The Parent and Child playgroup programme is catered to all parents (Mums or Dads) with their child/ children between 15 months to 3 years of age. Once a child reaches 3 years old they are no longer eligible for this programme.
