Squeals on Wheels is our baby and toddler/carer group which offers:
– Support and advice of a peer group
– A gateway to the local community
– A bridge to the life of the Church
– A chance for a small child to experience other children
– Fun activities for carers and very young children at a convenient time and place.
We meet in St Aidan’s Church from 9 – 11am on Tuesday mornings in term time. The church chairs are cleared away and a selection of toys and books put out on colourful mats for the children. Chairs are arranged around the room for the carers. We also have a good selection of trikes and other rideable toys and, of course, dolls, prams and a playhouse.
After about an hour’s play with the toys, ‘play dough’ or a simple activity, everything is cleared away and small tables and chairs arranged for the children. Refreshments are served for all. This is followed by a simple sing-song.
The session ends with a short prayer. Any parent or carer and baby or toddler is welcome.
The charge is £1 per family/carer for each session attended. This includes the cost of a hot drink, biscuit and fruit for the adults and fruit and orange squash for the children.
