"Sure Start group Mucky pups"

About: New Woods Children's Centre

(as the patient),

I wanted to let people know about this fantastic group I attend with my daughter. I have been going to this toddler group since my daughter was 5 months old, she is now 2 & a half.

I cannot begin to describe how much effort goes into this session every week. The idea behind it is to give children aged 0-5 new learning experiences & it really does. The leader of the group, Louise, obviously researches new things to do, it never fails to amaze me every time we go. From a huge painting area, to hair conditioner play dough, water pipes, paint ice cube, & a fantastic garden area with mud kitchen & endless activities to do (we don't usually get around them all! )

I cannot stress enough the effort that goes into it, each activity has had thought & time put into it & parents are always asked their thoughts & input. There's also a yummy snack of fruit & toast & often food relating to celebrations & topics. All of this for free! !

Well done to sure start I will miss this once my little one starts nursery& I know she will too. The parents and staff are so welcoming, I urge you to go! ! Well done to Louise & Anne & your team!
