When, Where and Why?

Toddlers runs on Fridays mornings from 9:30-11:15 in the church hall at Hilton Church during school term time.  To cover weekly costs there is a nominal fee of £1.50 per family per session.

It is organised by a group of folk that go along to the 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 hope you find a warm, friendly welcome here!

From the subs we receive for Toddlers, £21 a month is sent to the charity Compassion who, through local churches, provide children with food, medical care, education and who also organise a child sponsorship programme.  We sponsor Nashon Odindo from Kenya and write to him about Toddlers, Hilton church and life in Scotland.

Now and again we also organise a baking stall to raise more money for our funds.

What Happens?

The church hall is fairly large which allows a good variety of toys to be available for toddlers.  At the far end of the hall there are bigger toys which include a slide, trampoline and ride-on cars.  Among other toys there are also car and railway tracks, a kitchen corner, dressing up clothes and tables for playdough and jigsaws.  A craft activity is available at the beginning of the session until snack time.   The opposite end of the room is set up as 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 before tidying up the hall.

From time to time we also organise additional meetings and social events, which are advertised on the notice board.
