“Due to the government guidelines we would be unable to serve drinks and snacks, have a seated area or do song time. Nor could we offer coffee and cake to the grownups! We could only offer play stations where you would need to be with your children at all times (trying to maintain a semblance of social distancing), and take turns to move around the areas. We feel these things change the feel of Noah’s ark too much. Therefore, reluctantly, and for everyone’s ongoing safety, we have decided not to open Noah’s ark up yet. We will review the situation in the run up to October half term and let you know what we have decided.’
Update – Closed until further notice
Due to the update and advice from the government and the Church of England under new circumstances, we have had to make the difficult decision to close our toddler group until further notice.
We will miss you all and if you need any support and help during this time, please do contact our Church Office as we would love to try and help you!
Noah’s ark is our toddler group that runs on a Thursday morning (term time only) 10am-11.30am at the Wheelhouse 80 East lane. All welcome.
Noah’s ark is a fun and friendly place to be on a Thursday morning. Mums, Dads, Grandparents and child-minders arrive with their toddlers and babies to a room full of fun activities – ride on toys, small slides, construction toys cars, trains, dolls etc. There is always a craft activity and a soft play area for the youngest visitors.
Halfway through the session we gather together for a snack and a story. The children enjoy fruit and a biscuit whilst the adults enjoy tea, coffee and home baked cakes provided by a talented team of ladies from St Mary’s. Just before home time we gather together again for song time.
Throughout the year we have a few special events- we celebrate Christmas with a party, there is always an Easter treat and in the summer we have a few fun trips out.
Noah’s ark is a lovely meeting place for child carers in the local community. Often new family’s moving into the area find it a great place to make new friends.
£2 for the first child and £1 for each additional child over one (Includes child/adult refreshments)
