Rhyme Time

 A FOCAL Fun and Educational Experience for your Child.
Aimed at children from birth to 4 years old, we sing and act out Nursery Rhymes so mums, dads, grandparents, carers and their children can play and learn together in a stimulating environment with others of the same age. Following the singing, there is time to have a drink and chat together. We run every Thursday morning from 10:00 am to 11:00 am in term time only. Rhyme Time is run solely by volunteers on behalf of Focal.
We ask for a voluntary payment per session of £2 for an adult and child plus £1 for each additional child to cover overheads
We run special sessions throughout the year, including a Christmas party rhyme time and an Easter Bunny session.
We always welcome more volunteers either to run sessions or help set up or make tea and coffee. Please contact one of our joint organisers:
Chris Peacock on peacockabcchris@aol.com or 01295 811032 or Jan Robinson on j.robinson45@btinternet.com
or 01295 816990. No need to book, just come and enjoy
