Stay and Play

Exploring the Eco garden:

We explored the mud kitchen, the den before decorating sticks with wool. I think parents enjoyed this activity more than the children. 

Tools for talking:

Helpful tips to aid developing speech in babies and young children. 

Messy play:

We had lots of fun exploring different items such as, corn flour, paint, cereal tuff spot, water and sand. 

We saw new faces this week which was great and it is lovely to see the children’s confidence grow week on week. 

Welcome back to Stay and Play: Exploring

We had a lovely first session back after the Christmas holidays and this weeks theme was exploring. We had water beads, sand, veggies, the Eco garden and den as well as many more activities such as jigsaws. 

Don’t forget your lidded cup for a warm drink for our next session. 

Week 3 of stay and play: Christmas crafts. 

We had a lovely play and stay session doing lots of Christmas crafts such as, salt dough decorations, Christmas garlands and much more. We also had the stickle bricks out and a few jigsaws for the children to use as well.  We enjoyed biscuits too. 

Week 2 of stay and play: We had more babies, toddlers and parents join us for stay and play this week. The aim was to go into the Eco garden and play with some musical instruments in class, however, the weather was not in our favour and so, we stayed in the class instead. We had playdough, Pudsey Bear colouring, stickle bricks, big books and much more for all to enjoy. 



Week 1 of stay and play: This was a bit of a  taster to see how many children we had and of what ages. It was a lovely hour spent with babies, toddlers and children playing and exploring an EYFS classroom and the resources within it. Parents were able to spend some time talking as well as guiding their child in a new environment. 


The children really enjoyed the playdough station, the big dolls house, big books and the bricks the most. 


Stay and Play sessions: 


We are offering a stay and play session for our families who have younger children from birth to starting school once a fortnight  for an hour (Friday 2-3pm)  throughout the Autumn terms.
