The Group meets in the John Yeoman’s Hall (opposite the church) each Thursday during term time from 9:15am until 2:15pm and is open to all who have care of pre-school children. Stay for whatever time suits you within the timescale. Snack lunches, at very reasonable prices, are available between noon and 1:00pm but orders must be placed by 11:45am. Coffee, tea, soft drinks and biscuits are on sale throughout the day. Membership, which lasts for a school year is only 50p and there is a charge of £1 per adult for each attended session. There are a number of helpers around during the session but carers are responsible for their own children and therefore numbers are not restricted.
Facilities include play mats and toys for babies, “Little Tike” slide, play tunnels and seesaw. We also have many sit ‘n ride toys, push-along toys, books, puzzles, Duplo Legos, foam building shapes and play dough. We have baby walkers and baby chairs available and also high chairs for use at lunch- time.
Mother & Toddler groups give mothers/carers an opportunity to meet and make new friends and for the children to learn to mix and share. The leaders are always ready to talk things over and provide a listening ear. We do not know all the answers but as members of the Baptist Church in Burton Latimer, we are always willing to help whenever we can.
