Activities at Hilton Church
Toddlers runs on Friday mornings during the school term, from 9:30-11:00 in the large hall at Hilton Church. Our aim is to run a fun, friendly group which allows the children lots of opportunities to play and the parents and carers a chance to chat, unwind and support one another through the ups and downs of looking after children.
We have a good variety of toys available for toddlers, from bigger toys including slides, a kitchen area, ride-on cars and dressing up clothes, to car and railway tracks, jigsaws and play-doh or craft activities. We also have a baby area, with baby toys, bouncers and comfier chairs for the adults.
Snack-time is usually around 10:30 or so and is prepared by a volunteer from the church, alongside two parents / carers who have signed up to the rota. Teas and coffees are also available for the adults.
Each session finishes with a song time, and occasionally we have someone in from High Life to run a Bookbug session.
To cover weekly costs there is a nominal fee of £1.50 per family per session, and during the year we have one or two additional fundraising events such as bake sales or coffee mornings. From time to time we also organise additional meetings and social events, which are advertised on the notice board.
We hope you find a warm, friendly welcome here!
