Norlin Playgroup Want Parents Ideas

11th March 2014

Norlin Playgroup has recently created a survey to advise people of what services Norlin are considering providing to the pre-school children in Wick and the surrounding areas.

Norlin are considering providing various activities for children who are pre-school age. We are looking into providing a breakfast club for children enrolled at Norlin and also the provision of 'Kidz' Time' which would cover all kinds of messy play, story and song times, outdoor exploration (weather permitting) and lots of other activities at times to suit parents and possibly some weekend and holiday provision as well.

Kidz Time would be out with the normal Norlin times which are currently 9:15 to 3:00 Monday to Friday and we would be looking at starting a session at 3:15 during weekdays. The sessions run throughout the week would be lasting for an hour with weekend sessions lasting longer depending on feedback from survey.

Norlin is also considering to provide a parent and baby/toddler group on Saturdays which will be run by the playgroup staff in order to support both parents/carers and babies and toddlers. The group will provide parents/carers the opportunity to meet other parents/carers and it will also give them the opportunity to engage in various activities with their child. Activities would include treasure baskets, messy and sensory play, song and music time and lots more activities that meets the needs and interest of each child. Overall the children will have great fun learning through play.

We are very open to any suggestions from parents/carers as to what we provide and what times we provide it at. If you wish to complete the survey please do so before Monday 24th March 2014.
