There are craft tables and various artistic activities. Half way through the session we stop for a snack and a drink with Tea and Coffee for grown ups. At the end of the session we sing some songs whilst they toys are tidied away. The highlight of the group is the ‘Ready Steady Go’ game which involves running/toddling from one end of the hall to the other!

Ladysmith Playgroup Charlie

Ladysmith Toddler Group is located next to Ladysmith Infant School, in the Community room (accessed via Pretoria Road near the bottom of Sampson’s Lane).

The group is run by Ladysmith Community Action Team (LCAT). The Toddler Group was originally designed to welcome the growing number of families who speak English as an additional language. Since then the group has developed, and now welcomes families from across our community to enjoy and share the experience of bringing up children, whilst celebrating cultural diversity.

During Toddler group sessions families  register on arrival. There are various activities set out for children to explore including some sort of tactile/ messy play, art/ craft activity, plus lots of toys and a small outdoor area with ride-ons.

Hot drinks for adults are provided, along with squash or water and biscuits for all, at 10.30. Families are welcome to bring their own snacks as well if required.

We finish by gathering on the carpet for a story and to sing songs together as a group; we encourage everyone to join in, although please don’t worry if your child has other ideas! Children take turns to choose a picture from the basket, each represents a different song. We then stick it on the magnetic wall for everyone to see. We would love to learn some new songs, maybe you would like to share a song you sang as a child? At the end of  each session we sing a ‘good bye’ song, in which  we sing good by to children individually.

Come along and play!
