Our sessions always include
- ‘active’ play (toddle trucks & scooters, trampoline, slide, play tunnel, hopscotch or balance beam)
- ‘role play and imaginative’ play (dressing-up, prams, a playhouse and kitchen, dolls house/farm/garage and train sets)
- ‘creative and mental’ play (puzzles, threading toys, playdough, storybooks, drawing).
As well as encouraging children’s active, creative and imaginative development with our weekly craft table (including baking, textiles and clay), we also share “juice-time” together and if there’s a birthday, even a cake with candles to blow out. At the end of the session everyone joins in tidying away before our final singing games and rhymes and thank-you prayer.
At our Christmas and Summer Parties, there’s extra fun with bouncy castles, strawberries, presents for our Leavers-for-School, and even a visit from Santa who brings a book for each child. Tempest Photography visits Smuffies each September to offer portrait photos for children and families.
We raise money annually for children’s charities with cake sales, raffles and a Big Sponsored Slide or Toddle each spring.
