What covid-safe measures are in place?
All our activities follow the latest government guidance on covid. You can see more details and our risk assessment on our covid information pages. Please do not attend Little Lambs if you have any of the symptoms of covid, or if you have been asked to self-isolate. We will provide hand sanitiser and encourage you to regularly clean your hands. There will also be surface wipes for toys if needed. Face masks are not mandatory but you are welcome to wear one and the area is spacious so you will be able to keep distance from others if you wish to.
Who is it for?
The group is for any one with a pre-school child - parents, carers, nannies, child minders or grandparents - everyone is welcome. We ask all parents or carers to supervise their children throughout the session.
What will a typical week look like?
Doors open at 10am and you are welcome to arrive from then onwards, doors close to new arrivals at 11am. Between 10am and 11am there is free play, craft and chat time. We have a wide range of toys for different ages and interests available - whether creative toys and building, reading, dressing up etc. There is an optional craft available which will relate to the Bible story for the week. Tea and coffee is available for adults between 10-11am.
At 11am, we will tidy up the toys and have refreshments and circle time. We provide water and a healthy snack for the children followed by some songs and a short story from the Bible. We wrap up at 11:30am.
