A day in the park

Cold Playjays Morning…

As we were chatting just before Playjays this morning, we agreed that the bitterly cold wind would probably keep numbers down. We could not possibly have been more wrong. The biggest Playjays ever saw 47 children and their parents and carers – around 80 people in all – squeezing into the lower hall (it really was too cold to play outside!), including 11 children for whom it was their first time!… Read More...

Playjays end of term

The last Playjays of term saw the first day warm enough to have the water table out - so it was a wet and messy morning! And it's lovely to have morning tea outside, not to mention there being less mess to clear up! We take three weeks off now, and Playjays will restart on October 14th.
