Shiplake Baby and Toddler Group - Update

There have been a lot of changes over the past 6 months at Shiplake Baby and Toddler Group. 

Sophie Pentecost has finally handed over running the group. We're not quite sure how long Sophie’s been running it but we're guessing about 10 years. I fully expect that she will still be helping out & with us every Wednesday for an earl grey tea & a chat - Thank you Sophie for the fantastic job you have done.

Ellen Broughton along with some regular helpers … Mums Nan's & Nannies will be running the Wednesday group. Ellen has been attending SBTG for the past 2 ½ years & helping Sophie for the past year.

We have slowly been making changes, introducing more structured sessions.

  • A sit down snack-time serving veggies with Hummus, crackers and fruit and of course tea and biscuits for the grown ups.
  • A weekly craft session –play-doh, painting, card making etc. we have bought new paints, aprons, glue & craft kits we’ve also set up a SBTG Pinterest page for craft ideas.
  • The last 15 minutes of each session we sing songs & nursery rhymes, we’ve also introduced a story time - anyone can bring in a favourite book to be read.

We’ve had a good toy clear out along with lots of cleaning, reorganising, labelling, drilling & dumping. We are the proud owners of new storage units & hooks (with thanks to Jeremy for putting them all up and making them secure).

You can keep up to date with everything we have been doing & what we will be up to on our facebook page (search for Shiplake Baby and Toddler Group).
