What's involved ?

We offer a peaceful, unhurried, welcoming environment in which your child can play and explore. The sessions have a gentle rhythm of play with simple natural toys made of wood and fabric, circle time with a story and seasonal songs.  There are seasonal craft and toy-making activities each week. Regular attendance will benefit both you and your child.

Please contact Nicola via email at if you would like to book a place to come along and join in the fun! The groups are very popular, and you may need to add your name to a waiting list.
