Grow and Explore Drop in
One of the most successful parts of our Children and Family’s programme have been our monthly Drop In sessions, where pre-school children and their parent/carers are introduced to playing and learning outdoors.
Each month we plan activities, exploring the Children’s Garden and the other plots at Hill Close, looking for the seasonal changes in the gardens, spotting birds, hunting for bugs and being creative through the use of natural art and craft materials.
We have many parents who have been with us for a number of years, introducing new siblings as the older ones grow and start school. They know that we try to be outside for as much of the session as possible and so the children ( and the grown-ups) need to come dressed appropriately. That way they can enjoy digging and planting, watering and making wonderful squishy dishes in our new Mud Kitchen without getting their clothes wet and muddy !
For some, jumping in muddy puddles is the best fun so wellies and waterproofs are always required!
Second Thursday of each month 9.30 to 11am – subject to re-opening
