Early Years

Staff and volunteers have always supported early years development by creating new baby and toddler groups, promoting community trips and developing the créche to run in tandem with adult learning workshops. However, with the introduction of the new Communities First programme, in April 2013 we appointed an Early Years Intervention Officer to support new and expectant parents to be child ready. Tina is also delivering a new programme of events and activities to stimulate young minds, help develop strong and prosperous families and support children 0-3 to reach their developmental goals.

The first eighteen months in a child`s development are the most important in that child`s life. This programme helps parents with children aged 0 to 3 to understand when, why and how their child is developing. At baby and toddler and supporting child development groups you can learn about age appropriate toys, play and activities. The focus is on having fun with your child ! Come along and find out about how to make cost effective toys, what works in baby and toddler child care or how to prepare for your new arrival..
