Mums and Toddlers

Mums And Toddlers
Sam Brooks

We all hear and see signs for Mums and Toddlers, but what is it really all about?

Mums and Toddlers is no longer really Mums and Toddlers, as it’s NOT just mothers that take their children along.

At Mearns Kirk Toddlers, we have many different people bringing along babies and toddlers - parents, grandparents, childminders etc.

Over the years, it has seen many faces and, from what I hear, have changed and developed as years have gone by.

At present, it is a space for parents, grandparents, childminders to bring along children to.

A place for children to interact with others and play.

A place for adults to come and meet others who are taking care of young children (which sometimes can be a lonely place).

The session involves:

  • Free Play - with a range of toys (of which coupe cars are popular)
  • Song Time/Story Time
  • Snack Time (for both children and adults!)
  • There is a Colouring Table and plenty of Books.

It really is a lovely wee friendly group.

If you know of someone or are someone who looks after a child on a Wednesday morning, why not pop in and try us out?

“Toddler Group is a lovely part of our week.  It’s nice to get together with local mums, dads, grandparents, childminders in a lovely space where the kids can play together with all the various toys” Jenny (a mum).
