Jolly Tots is for Pre-school children with their parents/carers: This baby and Toddler Group is normally held at 9.00 a.m. every Thursday during Term Time in the All Saints Community Centre. Unfortunately, the group has not been able to meet during the Covid-19 situation.
Please read the Statement below, published on 27th August 2020:
This morning I received an enquiry about when toddler groups will reopen, and in short the answer is not for some considerable time. The rules and guidance given by the government have not been specific to stay and play toddler groups which are completely different to nursery settings and playschools where you pay for childcare.
In toddler groups parents and carers stay and the children interact and share toys and none of these are allowed under current rules. I cannot imagine trying to run Let’s Play or Jolly tot’s where each family bubble was allowed only to use a small group of toys and not to interact or share the toys others have. There would have to be strict social distancing and toilet registers. We would have very strict numbers of people there, windows and doors open and no food or drinks and …. NO SINGING!!! This really does not look like the warm, friendly welcoming place that I consider Let’s Play and Jolly Tot’s to be. The groups will therefore not be opening in the near future, but will continue to run online and will continue regular live broadcasts. We have specials planned and some special events like Harvest and Christingle and Our Christmas advent calendar stories which will run everyday in December up to Christmas Eve. We really hope that we are able to meet your needs. Please let me know if you are finding things tough and need to unburden off load or rant!. I am only a phone call away or a zoom or messenger chat away. You can watch the broadcast by joining https://www.facebook.com/groups/letsplayathome/
