Our Footprints Baby & Toddler group has now been running for almost 3 years. The child age limit of the group is 36 months running on a Friday morning with a variety of toys available including slides, rockers, toy kitchen & food, prams & babies, cars & car mats, dress-up outfits, jigsaws, etc. In addition we provide a craft activity, often either playdoh, chalks, or sticking. There is also a separate area for babies, with age appropriate toys. At the end of the session we have some singing (sometimes with the parachute!) & the children can play with musical instruments.
The cost of the group is £1 for one child (plus 30p for each extra child) and that includes tea/coffee & biscuits for the parents. We also provide a snack time of fruit, breadsticks & milk or water for the children where they can sit together picnic-style!
Numbers attending the group do vary but we normally average around 8-10 parents each week but on our busiest weeks we’ve reached 17 which is great fun! We have a lot of parents & children who have been coming regularly since the group started and word has been spreading through their friends & through the childrens centres. Our aim is to promote an atmosphere where parents and children all feel welcome and are able to make connection with each other.
