The Mums and Toddlers group within Street Baptist Church is a vibrant, busy (and sometimes noisy!!) group for Mums (and Dads) who have toddlers before they enter pre-school or school years.
This group is an ‘outreach’ of the church – it is open to all who wish to come in, whether or not you attend any other church activity.
SBC has run the Mums and Toddlers group for many years, and it has become a well-known diary ‘must’ for young mothers in the area. In fact, we are now seeing mothers come with their children who were brought along as toddlers themselves!
The group meets on Thursday mornings each week of the school terms. It starts at 10am with the Hall area covered with toys, games and craft activities for all ages. There is an area that is reserved for small babies with baby toys and a mat that they can be laid on to play.
After a time there are drinks and biscuits provided (free) for the children, and coffee or tea available for the Mums and Dads. If the weather is good there are a range of ride-on toys, a small climbing frame and slide, a play house and a sand-pit available in the enclosed patio area outside the hall.
At 11:15, all the toddlers and Mums move into the Middle Room for songs, nursery rhymes and a short interactive Bible Story. Any children’s birthdays are celebrated each week. We finish the morning at 11.30, so that the children can be taken home in good time for their lunch.
We know that Mums whose children have finally ‘grown up’ and moved on to school really miss coming out to the Mums and Toddlers group that has become so much a part of their life. We hope that you will come and enjoy this time with us too.
