Weekly groups

What's On - Our Summer Term is now live, please take a look

There are so many groups on offer at our centre, but who are they aimed at and what do they involve? Please note, all of our weekly groups run term time. We do offer school holiday stay and plays, please keep a look out for these.

 

  • You and Your Baby - This warm and welcoming group is run by our experienced team and is open to any parents with babies from birth to walking and parents-to-be. The group encourages parents to engage in free flow activities, messy play, story time and song time. It provides a great opportunity to chat and meet with other new parents and babies, and can help to reduce isolation amongst first time families. These sessions are held in Badgers building on Mondays from 10 - 11.30am and Wednesdays from 12.30 - 2pm. Running term time only, no need to book your space.     
     
  • You and Your Toddler - This is a fun session for families with babies and children under 4. Our experienced team will be on hand to support you with any concerns, and let your child/ren have a wonderful time playing. We provide opportunities for messy play, role play and outdoor play. Come along and have some fun, sing songs and meet with other families. These sessions run on Tuesday from 9.30 – 11am in Badgers building. Running term time only, no need to book your space.     
     
  • 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. 
     
  • Baby Massage - This nurturing group is run by our qualified Family Support Worker and encourages bonding with your baby and increases parents' confidence in handling their baby. This group helps to reduce isolation for new mums and provides a welcoming and safe space to meet new people. This group is held in our Badgers building on Mondays from 1 - 2.30pm. The five week course must be booked in advance by contacting us at bookings@bushyleaze.hants.sch.uk. Running term time only.
