Parent & Child Group
Birth - Five
Friday 10:30-12:45 or 1:15-3:30
A playful, peaceful, imaginative group for parents/caregivers and children birth to five.
On arrival, children have a period of free play, while parents can choose to settle to a seasonal craft activity at the table. We share the task of tidying away, singing the tidy song, before making a circle in the bird room. We enjoy seasonal and festive songs, rhymes and simple games, followed by a hand-washing song, sung individually to each child (they love this!)
We have a light bring & share meal around a shared table, beginning by lighting a candles and singing a thank you song for our food, and celebrate children's birthdays by lighting a special candle in the birthday ring, and singing happy birthday.
After eating, we share the task of clearing the table, and children help sweep the floor with child size brooms, before congregating in the butterfly garden. We go outside in all weathers, and bring appropriate clothing to fully enjoy it! In wet weather there are muddy puddles a-plenty!
It's a short walk (or toddle) to the woodland clearing, where the children sit for a seasonal story and our goodbye song. Many parents choose not to rush away afterwards, and enjoy more time together in the beautiful limewoods.
Please get in touch if you would like to come and join us for a free trial session.
