As well as encouraging all kinds of play – active, creative and imaginative – with crafts, baking, playdough and paint, 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 also raise money for children’s charities with cake sales, raffles and a Big Sponsored Slide or Toddle each spring.
