  • Young Families Together (PEEP: Parents Early Education Partnership) - This is group aimed at young parents suitable for those with children from birth up to 5 years old. The group aims to support parents and carers to enhance their children's learning and development and improve their life chances by making the most of everyday learning opportunities. Through this, babies and children become confident communicators and active learners. This is about valuing and building on what parents already do - sharing ideas from parents, practitioners, and also understanding why they help children's later development. This group is run on Wednesdays from 9.30 - 11am. 
  • Cooking/ Weaning on a Budget (In partnership with Tantum Trust) - Join our new cooking courses and learn about cooking delicious meals for the family while saving money. The courses will build your confidence in preparing cost effective and nutritionally balanced meals, increase your knowledge and awareness of the nutritional needs of your family in a social environment with other parents. Our weaning sessions are great to learn helpful tips about preparing and serving food for your babies. These sessions are advertised accordingly and must be booked in advance.
