Babies & Toddlers (BATS)
Friday mornings from 10.00 am during term-time
The group is run by volunteers from the church and runs from 10.00-11.30 am every Friday during term-time. The session costs £1 per family, per week.
From 10.00-11.15 am we offer a time of unstructured free play in our large hall. There is a sectioned-off activity area which alternates between 'sit and rides' one week and 'big toys' (e.g. cube slide, pop-up tunnels, stepping stones and see-saws) the other. The smaller toys in the hall include cars, trains, farmyard animals, a dolls house, a table bead puzzle and a home corner. There is a separate baby area in the main hall, which is also sectioned-off and has a selection of soft baby mats as well as a variety of baby toys.
Drinks and snacks are available from 10.00-10.45 am in the lounge. We usually finish off each morning with a song time. We mark special occasions like Christmas and Easter with some sort of special activity. Occasionally during the term we may extend the morning so parents and guardians bring a packed lunch for their children and we provide tea, coffee and cakes for the adults and enjoy lunch together. Details of these mornings and other special events are included in our newsletter produced every half-term.
Whether you are a parent, grandparent or carer, why not join us for a morning? It would be really lovely to meet you.
All dates can be viewed on the Church Calendar.
