It’s a play date at Weaverham Tots!

Parents and young children are being invited to join the fun at the new Weaverham Tots group.

The free stay-and-play sessions run every Thursday (during term time) at Weaverham Pre-school, on Northwich Road.

Children from birth to school age can attend and will have access to an all-weather outdoor play area and messy play space, as well as baking and arts and crafts activities led by fully qualified EYFS educators. All parents and carers are welcome to the sessions, which run from 10-11.15am.  Snacks are provided for children and hot drinks for parents.

Chair of Trustees Jenny Marshall, has run the Ofsted ‘outstanding’ pre-school for over a decade. It first opened at Weaverham Forest Primary but moved, along with staff, to the new more spacious facility in the grounds of Weaverham Primary Academy last year.

She said: “Moving to our new facility has given us the opportunity to expand our play equipment and make many positive changes.

“Setting up the Weaverham Tots group seemed like a natural progression to further develop our provision for the children of this village.

“Our first few sessions have been very well attended and the response has been fantastic, we couldn’t be happier.

“There is a lovely atmosphere and the children are clearly enjoying all the opportunities to play.

“Having spoken to parents, we are now planning to get specialists in to offer support and guidance on things such as potty training, breast feeding and weening.”
