Bobtails Baby and Toddler Group is a play and support group for parents, carers and their children from birth until school age. The Group offers children a chance for free play with other children of similar age, with a variety of toys and activities including a baby area, a book area, messy play, arts & crafts, and lots of equipment for physical development from a trampoline through to ride-ons and push-alongs. The sessions are currently run by Tina Touchent who has been a Bobtails regular for a number of years.
We meet in the Girton Pavilion (next to the Recreation Ground) on Mondays* and Thursdays from 09:30 to 11:30. Please enter using the door which faces on to the recreation ground (the door facing on to the car parks is only used for emergency exits). All children must be accompanied by an adult and remain their responsibility throughout the session.
Our regular attendees include not only mums and dads but also grandparents, nannies, au pairs and child minders of all ages and many nationalities. For parents and carers we provide tea, coffee and a chance to meet up with other like-minded adults.
Each session is structured roughly as follows and people come and go between these times:
09:30 Free play plus an art activity
10:15 Snack for children and coffee/tea and a biscuit for adults (please sign up by 10:00)
10:40 Free play
11:00 Tidy-up time
11:10 Song time
