Happy Faces (Mother and Toddler Group) meet on Monday afternoons, 1.30 pm — 3.30 pm (term time only). Fun for babies and pre-school children, with their parents or carers, with toys, songs, activities.
It is now five months since we met for Happy Faces on a Monday afternoon. During this lockdown we have missed seeing our adults and children but we (the helpers) have bumped into some of our families in and around Wimborne, which has been lovely for us. They are all missing us very much and can't wait for things to get back to normal. We have contacted parents by email to give them updates. Twelve children have had a birthday during lockdown so we have emailed a birthday greeting to them and all the parents have replied thanking us for remembering the occasion, most of them sending a birthday photo of their child. At the moment we cannot imagine when it will be safe to restart our sessions as small toddlers and crawling babies do not understand social distancing!
Happy Faces, our Toddler group at Wimborne, re-opened in June and parents were keen to return. Each week the Toddlers and parents did an animal craft activity learning that God loves all creatures.
