Seedlings and Saplings Playgroup

Did you know that every Tuesday morning we run a parents and toddlers session between 9.30am and 11.30am? 
The upstairs space above the tearoom is laid out with toys, teddies, games and crayons for toddlers to enjoy.  We’ve had a lovely new stair gate made to go at the top of the stairs to make the space even safer for the little ones. Our toys cater to all ages from soft toys and play mats for babies, to toy kitchen sets and a farm house for the older tots.

On the last Tuesday of the month, we will have a qualified children’s play leader running some arts and crafts and messy play sessions during the playgroup. The next led session will be Tuesday July 31s

Our teddy needs a hug!
Older children who may be around in the summer holidays too are more than welcome to come and join in the fun.  If the sun is shining and you want a bit of outdoor play, our “pig-nic” area is a great space for kids to run around in.  We have a brand new see-saw and musical washing line, as well as giant sausage links, a wooden pig and a giant worm to scramble on!  The area is fenced off from the rest of the fields, so children can explore outdoors freely and safely.

If your kids are a bit more adventurous and you want to explore the farm trails, our woodland area has some new stepping stones to play on, as well as a tightrope and a scramble rope.  A rope swing will be coming soon…watch this space!

Our playgroup mornings are FREE and there is no need to book, just turn up, grab a cuppa and enjoy the morning with other likeminded parents.  See you here soon!
