Dear Stay and Play visitors,
We have made the difficult decision to postpone our forthcoming Stay and Play sessions until after the Easter holidays.
The safeguarding of all children and adults is our main priority and in light of the uncertainty over the Covid-19 virus, we feel that making the decision now is the most sensible one to take.
We understand how disappointing this is to the many families who attend our Stay and Play sessions to play with their child and meet with other parents. We look forward to welcoming you back to Ghyll Royd once our sessions resume after Easter.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page and website to see when sessions resume. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Join us for our weekly Little Notes and Art Splash ‘Stay and Play’ session. Our Stay and Play takes place on Friday mornings from 9.30am to 11.00am (term time only). For children aged 18 months to 4 years.
From Friday 1st March 2019, Stay and Play will cost £1.00 per family for entry and there will be additional costs for the Music and Gym sessions. The costs cover specialist teaching, materials and resources which is then fed back into the quality of our Stay and Play sessions.
Please note that an adult must stay with the child who has booked during the session. We have optional extra sessions which are filled on a first come, first served basis. Get here for 9.30am to book your slot!
Little Notes Music Session, 9.35am – 10.00am / 10.05am
– 10.30am, Stay and Play
Run by our specialist Music teacher, this session will provide a range of rhymes and songs for children. The session provides an environment that is both stimulating and nurturing for toddlers. Early experiences with music and movement give your toddler an early learning advantage. Music, specifically singing songs and speaking rhymes and chants, improves language development.
Gym4Tots, 10.00am – 10.30am, Stay and Play
Run by our specialist PE teacher, this 30 minute session is a fun and flexible workshop with activities tailored around young children. Using sport equipment, Mr Wilce will have parents and toddlers working together to build strength and those all important motor skills! For ages 3+!
Art Splash, Stay and Play
Run by our specialist Art teacher, this drop-in session will provide a range of messy art activities for children. Our Art Splash session grows the children’s confidence and independence while further developing their creative minds.
Play Time, Stay and Play
The last part of the Stay and Play session is unstructured play time where children are free to roam the outdoors in our wonderful adventure playground, or choose from a range of exciting activities available in our classroom from reading, to drawing, to playing with toys.
Entry and Art Splash – £1.00 per family
Music Notes – £2.00 per family, £1.00 per sibling
Gym4Tots – £2.00 per family, £1.00 per sibling
