Thereโ€™s a lovely forecast ahead for this Thursdays session โ˜€๏ธโ˜€๏ธ

If you are planning on coming, please book ahead ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
I prep the resources for the session a few days prior then I go down Wednesday evening to set up. If there arenโ€™t enough bookings by Wednesday afternoon, itโ€™s not feasible for me to run the session. Last week I cancelled then had a number of messages asking to book on Thursday morning but I canโ€™t set up at this late notice with my crazy 1 year old in tow ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I would love to continue running sessions through the summer ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŽจ

We also have our upcoming Milby school starters session on the booking site:

11/06/2024

Is your little one starting Milby Reception class this September?

Weโ€™ve been asked to put on a play session specifically for this group as an opportunity for the children and parents to get to know one another. This will be particularly beneficial to anyone feeling a little anxious ๐Ÿค

Please share or tag anyone that might be of interest ๐Ÿ˜Š

3 years of the playgroup โ€ฆ wow!! How our little ones have changed and so many new additions too!

Weโ€™d like to celebrate with a Sunday session ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ It would be lovely to see some past Little Explorers join us. If the weathers nice, feel free to bring a picnic along for after the session and catch up ๐Ÿฅฐ

When we first opened it was just after the long winter lockdown and we were limited to 15 adults outside at one time. Sessions sold out within minutes as we were all so desperate to do something with our little ones other thanโ€ฆ stay at home!! How times were strange!

Thankyou for each and every booking over the years. Thereโ€™s lots of admin, so much prep (my husband is constantly moaning about the playgroup mess at home ๐Ÿ˜‚ dyed rice, playdough etc) my car is always carnage!, the set up and pack away is a challenge with Lando ๐Ÿ˜ฌ but the stress is worth it when I see your little ones having a great morning! so thankyou for supporting my little venture ๐Ÿฅฐ we wouldnโ€™t still be going without your bookings.

Have a lovely bank holiday weekend x

It was lovely to be back yesterday ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Stress levels were high as Isabelle decided just as it started that she wanted to go home ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Lando refused to be put down as I tried to pack away so I had to abandon everything and return later ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Needless to say, next Thursday I will be sorting childcare ๐Ÿคช

It was so lovely to see so many regulars again and to catch up (when I had a moment!)
