Our aim is to give a warm welcome to everyone, whatever their age, relationship to the child, culture, religious background, colour gender or ability. We offer a safe and happy environment for the team to work with parents, carers and children and create a group where children feel safe enough to play happy and develop their social skills. In Butterflies we offer true friendship to everyone who attends our toddler group and we like to create an environment where friendships can be made among group members. We try to encourage parents and carers to assist and participate so in each session they will feel that they are an essential part of the group.
Our team consists of Katie (Butterflies Leader) and a group of volunteers that help out on regular basis – we value, encourage and care for every member of the team.
We have several separate areas set out in the room including: Baby Area – with carpet, baby mats and soft toys, the Table Top Area – with puzzles, books and educational toys and the ‘Ride Along Toys’ area which also includes the play kitchen, train tracks, car mat with toy garage plus much more! At Butterflies we also have ‘Song Time’ which is a ten minute slot in the middle of each session where we sing nursery rhymes and action songs together. Following this, we then have ‘Craft Time’ where we provide a craft activity for your child/ren to enjoy!
Please note you are responsible for your children at all times and we ask you to encourage you children to follow these three simple rules:
- Be kind to each other
- Share toys with each other
- Be careful – watch out for each other
Finally, please introduce yourself and make newcomers feel welcome! This is your group so please feel free to talk with any team member at any time. We also welcome any questions you have about The Salvation Army- each term we hold a Family Celebration Service in our Worship Hall to which everyone is invited!
