Throughout lockdown we will post regular content which may help to keep your little ones entertained. This content will mostly be centred around the baby, toddler, preschool age range but it could easily be adapted for older children as well. Remember there will be more online / virtual groups and classes available on the What’s On Guide which may allow you to have 30 minutes of peace to enjoy that cuppa or to make that important work call.
This page will feature some of the resources, ideas and activities we have posted on our social media for an ‘easy to find’ guide of things to do. If you have any ideas get in touch and we’ll have a go then post about it!
