“All Aboard” Music Makers and Storytelling

All aboard for our noisy music makers and story time session at St Mary’s, with the usual soft play, musical sing-along and parachute fun. Musicians visit from time to time, and each child’s creativity is encouraged through music and stories. There will also be a chance to hear fruits and learn new skills, as children are encouraged to enjoy healthy eating with their friends. Parents and carers are welcome to read a story while they enjoy their snacks, and families can stay for a three-course lunch with Lulu for a very affordable fee.

Movers and Shakers

Movers and Shakers is a fun, 30-minute music and movement session introducing the very young to rhymes, songs and signs. Every child taking part has the chance to sing, play a musical instrument, be amazed by the parachute and get lost in a world of bubbles! Sit with your child as they sing, play, listen and learn.

How Under-Fives Services Help Children

  • Many young children have had little opportunity to interact with others of their age due to lockdowns. Healthy development is directly linked to children socialising and playing with others.
  • Under-fives’ speech and language delay is a cause for concern. Drop-ins can provide effective stimulation for communication and language development.
  • Drop-ins offer a gateway to other specialist services.
  • Many families have no parents currently in work. Children under five are disproportionately affected by low incomes.

Sponsor a child with weekly support

Every child deserves a chance in life. Early years are an absolutely critical time for child development. 

By donating £20 a month, you can support one child’s free place at our under-fives sessions. This is invaluable for children who don’t otherwise have access to free play sessions, and will transform their future prospects.

Remember your loved one and make a difference for a child under five

A donation in honour of a loved one ensures their memory lives on, at the same time as providing services for children.
