The first 1,001 days of a child’s life are when they are most susceptible to learning. Their experiences shape brain development, and have a lifelong impact on mental and emotional health. Here at the LJWB, we have designed a programme to support families throughout the most critical development of their child’s life.

Our new project offers play sessions and groups to support pregnant mothers, new babies and parents/carers with children aged 0-5. The services we offer begin with antenatal and postnatal groups, a Bumps and Babes course, and play and learning sessions for all ages.

The refurbished playroom offers experiences and opportunities for children to learn through play, develop socially and prepare for nursery whilst parents/carers meet others in a warm and friendly environment. We have a fabulous home corner, quiet book corner, a baby and sensory area, a mud kitchen and much much more. During the sessions, we provide a healthy snack, arts and crafts, messy play, and singing with all the trimmings!

We welcome the whole community to check out our program of activities and we hope to see you and one of our groups soon.

Please can we ask you to book your place on our sessions. Contact Meanie – melanie.tillman@ljwb.co.uk
