New Term for Toddlers!

Welcome back from everyone at Toddlers following our summer break, it was great to see both familiar and new faces at our first session of the new ‘term’. We have lots planned between now and the end of the year, including an ‘Hawaiian style Beach Party’, too cold for ‘cozzies’ but sunglasses and brightly coloured tops will look very cool. Planned ‘special visitors’

First day back and Rachel from Rhythm Time started things off on a glorious singing and rhythmic note, listening to the beat, the children were particularly good at playing instruments and stopping on Rachel’s command, great fun and a vital skill to learn for their next phase of nursery education. Rachel runs classes locally so check out the website:


As a parent or carer it is often difficult to find any ‘me time’ so we regularly ask Corinne from Stop and Smell the Roses, a theraputic practice based in Wolston to visit Toddlers and offer a quiet taster massage or treatment during the bustle of the morning. Mostly children will carry on playing with the range of toys we have on offer or they will cuddle up and look on whilst parents have hands or feet or necks massaged. Mmmmm lovely. We applaud you all for doing one of the most important roles in the world, raising the next generation.

Shout Out for Toys & Children’s Clothes!

We are in need of good quality children’s toys and clothes which we sell to raise funds so if you have any that you would like to donate please give me a call, telephone number below and we can arrange collection or leave on the doorstep at 26, Vicarage Lane. We hope that you are able to help.

Coffee Morning @ All Saints

We love doing the Coffee Morning in the Tom Hauley Room at All Saints Church and are always made to feel very welcome. The build-up can be sometimes a little stressful, wondering if we will have enough cakes, raffle prizes and bric a brac but social media ‘shout outs’ and approaching friends and family usually does the trick!

This time the proceeds were for Entrust Care Partnership, all funds raised on the morning go directly to providing services for disabled children and that’s a promise as we have no huge overheads or admin charges and our founding Director lives in the village. So, THANK YOU everyone who came and supported us on the day and beforehand we raised a huge £200, which is our very best ever.Young Oliver pictured at the front, cheeky smile and blond hair, helps regularly at our fund raising events he is a little star. When we counted all the coins and notes we were just £1.00 short of the £200 and Oliver stepped up and gave us his pocket money – thank you very much Oliver, a social conscience at a tender age.
