As a team, we’ve always strived to find new ideas for sessions to ensure all pre school children in our community have the opportunity to experience different activities…
Our Monday session, Totally Toddlers provides structured play with a craft, Fridays at Diddy Discoverers provides active play with slides and climbing fun. Our Bumps & Babies session is aimed more at Mum’s and carers as the baby stage can be (is!) hard, so tea and a friendly ear is much needed. Then of course we run Cooking Club on a Wednesday and Friday.
This club is very popular and gives the children a chance to discover new foods and gain some independence. Both of our playgroups offer a story time which is always well received by the children. Seeing how engaged they were when we are reading got us thinking that a dedicated story time would work well.
Thanks to our friends at the Gibraltar Methodist Church, we were able to start our new Sensory Story time session in the Summer Term on a Thursday lunchtime. Asking Toddlers / Pre School Children to sit down for an hour isn’t an achievable task which is why we decided to offer something different.
Each week we have a different theme with a table set up to accompany the stories that we are reading. We don’t expect the children to sit still for the whole hour. They are encouraged to play, interact, touch and talk about the story. In fact, many of them like to tell us a story!
Using sensory play makes the book come alive! Why not join us on a Thursday from 1-2pm to see for yourself!
