Cortonwood Lunch Club

Messy Monsters

Parent Cares and toddler groups are a lifeline to many parents and carers as they provide a welcoming and supportive environment during the week. Because of this, toddler groups can have a great impact on their lives, and the lives of the children who attend

Children naturally make friends through joining in group activities such as the craft table, story and song times. Often children can be accompanied by someone other than a parent; this could be a friend of the family, a childminder, a grandparent or other relative.  The great part about Messy Monsters is that Parents, carers and team members all join in with the activities and chat with each other in a friendly safe and warm environment.  Jayne our Group leader says.

People come along for different reasons,  for some it is to help their child mix with other children, while for others it is because they are hoping to meet new people, others will be there to prevent isolation and to gain support in the responsibility of parenting.
