We aim to deliver a good mix of free play time, themed sessions (i.e. seasonal craft, cooking, and even science!), encouraging social skill development by sitting down to a snack and rounding the session off with a good old sing-song of all the traditional, favourite nursery rhymes and a few more modern adaptations!
The cost is £2.00 per family, which includes all craft materials, cooking ingredients, snack and of course, a cup of tea for Mum!
