2. Do I need to book onto a session?
Yes. With limited spaces per session it is important that you book your child’s space in advance.
To book, go to “Book your Session” on the drop down menu. Then select your book, choose your Age, Date and Time Slot, then add to basket and checkout.
To book more than one book at a time, just keep adding your selections for each book to your cart before checking out.
If booking from a mobile and you need to get onto a different page, scroll to the bottom of page 1 on the booking page, then turn your phone horizontal/landscape and the rest of the pages will appear.
3. How old does my child need to be?
There is no lower age limit, but it is recommended that your child will get the most out of the session from over 7 months. However, babies 0-6 months are also welcome to come and there are always areas for babies to enjoy. The upper age limit is 5 years old during the term time. During the Holiday sessions children up to the age of 8 years are welcome, as long as you feel they will benefit from this session. Children aged 5-8 years will be charged at the same rate as children aged 7 months - 5 years.
4. Do I need to bring anything to the session?
Everything needed to join in with the activities is supplied for the children, this includes aprons. However, if parents/carers would prefer to put their children in old clothes for the craft activities that may be advisable.
5. When will the sessions run?
Our sessions will be held weekly through the school terms. However, there are holiday sessions throughout the school year, which include some party sessions too.
6. What will a session consist of?
Each session will consist of a variety of activities based around a different story each week. These activities will include a variety of art and craft activities, role play areas, messy play, sensory play and lots, lots more for your child to enjoy. The children will do these activities for the first 45 minutes.
We will then break for a drink and a biscuit, whilst I read the story of that weeks theme to the children. Parents/carers will also have the opportunity at this point to relax with a hot drink and a biscuit whilst their children enjoy the story.
There will be another hour of playtime after the break and before the end of the session.
All drinks and biscuits are included in the price of the session.
7. What times are the sessions?
Term Time sessions are 9.30-11.30am
A Party morning session will run 10am - 12pm
An Party afternoon session will run 2 - 4pm
8. How much will a session cost?
Please see the price page to work out costings for your child/children's visit.
9. Where are the sessions held?
The "Contact Us" page has details of our address.
We are based in a lovely, light and spacious Village Hall in Addington, Kent.
It has a large parking area and is in a quiet location, right next to a lovely field for picnics, or a run around before or after your session. The park also has a lovely play area for young children to enjoy!
10. Will my child be my responsibility?
Yes. The children need to be the responsibility of their parent/carer whilst they enjoy the activities.
