What Nanny Alex says about her events...

The Playgroup I run on a Wednesday morning is a semi-structured session, allowing lots of time for free play, where the children choose what and how they want to play. The hall is set up with the play area at one end and a seating area for parents at the other end. Children have the opportunity to build confidence in playing with other children as well as myself, whilst their parent remains in sight. This also helps them get used to alternate care figures, which helps prepare them for nursery or school. The session begins with free play, then singing, followed by a snack of fruit, yogurt and a biscuit. We then have more free play before a storytime, then a craft activity. This is followed by more free play before tidy up time. Parents have the opportunity to sit and enjoy a hot drink (which will be served to you), during free play times, whilst I play with the children. There is a baby area for little ones, plenty of toys, and varied play equipment (including tents, tunnels, ball pit and mini trampoline). Parents are encouraged to assist their own children with snack and asked to participate in the craft activity. We have baby bouncers and bumbo seats if very little ones would also like to be part of these activities!
The Messy Play sessions I run on Friday afternoons are all about child led play and are not structured at all. There are two sessions, 13:30 - 14:30 and 15:00 - 16:00 to accommodate different routines. It will be warm enough in the hall for the children to play in nothing more than nappies, and bowls of warm water and towels for washing off after. There will be two messy ‘substances’ to play with each week, such as jelly, dough, paint, rice crispies, pasta etc. Toys and tools provided will promote fine motor skills such as scooping and pouring etc. All messy resources will be EDIBLE so far as reasonably possible. However, we will still encourage the children NOT to put them in their mouths, as we do not want to teach them to eat paint! It just means, that when they inevitably do sample some of it, we know it is safe for consumption! Again, we can provide a baby bouncer or bumbo for those too young to participate, the sessions are aimed at ages 1-3, but younger siblings are welcome to join in too!
The Christmas Party is a seasonal family event with activities aimed at ages 1 - 9, but welcoming all! There will be games, Christmas crafts, biscuit decorating and visit with Mrs Claus from whom they will receive a wrapped present. Her elves will then help them make a special card to take home for Mummy (if they want Mummy to help them with it that’s fine :p)! There will also be music, with disco style lights so we can do lots of dancing! Plus food and drinks :)
