About this event

You are always sure of a warm welcome and lots of fun at Play Café Gets OWT! and we are always delighted to see both new and familiar faces. Play Café Gets OWT! We hope to begin to move as many of our sessions back to the outdoors over the course of the Summer block as the weather improves. We will gather on the grass area in the grounds of the church (on the right as you walk towards the Gathering Grounds Café) weather permitting.

As we will be meeting outdoors, please come dressed for the weather and the mess! Some of our activities can also be wet and messy ! We encourage you to bring a rug/mat with a waterproof underside for you and your children to sit on. We will be outside for the whole session whenever possible! If it's very wet we will move inside to the hall in the parish centre.

Activities each week are linked to a book/theme with a trail to explore around the grounds, sensory and messy play , loose parts play, role play, and art/craft activities and almost always our homemade playdough. We finish our time together with story and song time.

We have a limited number of spaces available each week and we ask that you pre- book your family space via Eventbrite.

The various activities are set up individually, at spaced out stations at different heights - on tuff trays , low tables and on rugs . The set-up encourages child-led engagement and each child can decide on their play.

On arrival, you will be asked to sign in. Although you are responsible for your children there will always be at least 2 helpers present to help keep everyone safe.

We look forward to seeing you all and make lots of memories together.
