The Ark is a friendly group for pre-school children and their carers — parents, grandparents, child-minders, etc. are all welcome.
Sessions include free play, activities such as craft or play dough, refreshments and group time for parachute play, songs or puppet stories.
We vary the selection of toys from week to week, and it includes ride-ons, soft play, construction toys, play house and dressing up, jigsaws and table-top activities. We also have an area for babies with a baby nest, baby gym, etc.
Snack time is a lovely social time together round the table, with a selection from fruit, toast, biscuits and raisins. Juice or water is served for children and tea, coffee or cold drinks for adults. Special events sometimes call for cakes, Shrove Tuesday pancakes or a party tea. We try to accommodate special diets, so please talk to us if you have any concerns.
We’re open Tuesdays during school term-time between 1.30pm and 3.00pm. There’s no charge, but you can leave a donation, if you’d like.
