Parent and Toddler Group
Report by Michelle Day
Every Tuesday morning during term time we have a LARGE parent and toddler group! (It is the group that is large, not the parents).Up to 40 parents, grandparents and carers together with 40+ babies and toddlers come along each week to play, cry and laugh and thats just the parents! Seriously though, Chris, Lesley and myself along with Ann, Josie and Margaret in the kitchen build close reationships with parents and children, some of whom are vunerable and need a shoulder to cry on or a listening ear.
We have a snack around 10 o'clock and now need to have 2 sittings as there is not enough room to sit, then we go outside to play, weather permitting. At 11.15 we tidy up and end the morning with a song time.
It is a great bridge between the Toddler group and Pre-school with several children attending the latter because of the relationships that have been built within the group. Many parents have returned to us after having more children and occasionally grandparents who use to bring their own children are now bringing their grandchildren. We do not advertise as we are recommended by parents to their friends but we do have some kind comments on the netmums.com web site which also brings new parents in.
As we are now so busy we could do with some help please. Chris and I get around as many parents as possible, especially those on their own, but sometimes we need to sit with someone for longer and others get missed out. If you could spare even an hour on a Tuesday morning we would be most grateful. The group runs from 9.30 untill 11.30 every Tuesday morning.
The Friendship Group
Starting Wednesday 19th June 2019 we will be hosting a Friendship Group. This event is open to all adults who are looking for something to do or someone to chat with. It is an informal get together. There will be activities that you can enjoy or you can just sit and chat. Tea and coffee will be provided all for a contribution of £1 to cover the expenses and heat/light etc. The initial meeting will be from 10.30 until 12.15. Come and go as you please.
There is no fixed plan for the group, it will develop as the members require. We are aware that there are many people in Droitwich who have little contact with other adults during a 'normal' week so if you fall into this category or just want a change of company come along and enjoy the morning.
