Stay and Play
Stay & Play is back!
We meet in the Nursery room on Thursdays from 8:45 to 10am.
We sing, read stories, play with toys and have snack time together. Parents, Grandparents, Carers are all welcome to come and enjoy this session for babies and pre-schoolers. It is a wonderful way to help get your child ready for Nursery and School.
