Rainbow Café

Encouraging and inspiring a love of stories and talk.

A morning of free activities for parents of children at Preschool.

 

Once a half term, on Saturday mornings, we usually hold our Rainbow Café. The aim is to give families ideas for sharing a love of stories at home in a really fun way. Each one is based on a favourite children's picture book.

 

Rainbow Café is FREE and each session we:

 

* listen to a story

* make things to go with our story to take home

* borrow a STORY SACK or TALKING TENT

* meet other preschool families

* and much more...

 

Due to the current Covid situation, we are running Rainbow Café at Home activities until further notice. This way the children can share stories and related craft activities with their family members.

Stay and Play

 

To promote working in partnership with parents

and carers, these sessions are for you to stay with your child, if you wish, for about 15 minutes or so

at the beginning of the session. You can join them in an activity, play together and chat with their

key person.

Due to current Covid restrictions, we are unable

to invite parents and carers inside preschool at

the moment.

Our next Stay and Play session is on:

Friday 5th November

Monday 8th November
Tuesday 16th November
Wednesday 2nd November
Thursday 9th December
