Excitement as popular toddler groups relaunch

A local charity is welcoming back families to two of its toddler play sessions.

BS3 Community has reopened its 'BS3 Toddlers' and 'Toddler and Grandparents' groups, and is excited to offer a space for children and their families to socialise again.

‘BS3 Toddlers’ welcomes children and their parents and carers, including childminders. 

The weekly sessions run on Wednesdays, 9-10.30am during term time and include a range of activities, such as singing, crafts and sensory play.

The sessions are £3.50 for one adult and child plus 50p for each additional child.  Taster sessions are available for £2.50. 

‘Toddler and Grandparent Group’ (TAG) is recommended for children aged 12 months and over and is aimed specifically at grandparents and their grandchildren. 

These sessions run on Wednesdays during term time, 10.45am-12pm. The warm and friendly group includes crafts, a story, singing and games. A voluntary contribution of £3 is recommended.

Both ‘BS3 Toddlers’ and ‘Toddler and Grandparent Group’ take place in the main hall (Milford Hall) at the Southville Centre, in Beauley Road.

 A range of refreshments including fruit and hot and cold drinks are available.

In light of the pandemic, BS3 Community says that it has put together a variety of measures to ensure that everyone feels safe and welcome.  These include regular cleaning of surfaces and resources, hand sanitising stations and limiting numbers of attendees to the groups.  Masks are requested in communal spaces but are not required during the sessions.

Emma Lunt, lead teacher for ‘BS3 Toddlers’ and ‘TAG’ said: “It’s so exciting to be welcoming back both of these fantastic groups.  The Milford Hall offers such a beautiful, large, light and airy space for these sessions. Children and their parents and carers have missed out on so much over the last few months.

 “We’re so pleased to be able to offer the opportunity for families to share in play and laughter once again.

 “It’s so important that children are given the chance to explore new opportunities and interact with each other; plus it’s great that their grownups can get together for a chat and a cuppa too!”
