18 – 24 June is Pre-school Learning Alliance’s Playweek, and Sibford Tots and Babes based in Sibford Gower, are holding a special event for families and the local community to celebrate learning through play and all things early years.  We would love each of our young guests to bring along their favourite teddy bear or doll and join in on our tots and babes picnic. Join us on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st  9.30-11-30am in the small Village Hall, Sibford Gower.

Sibford Tots and Babes is a voluntary run group and has been established since 2008. The playgroup setting will be throwing open its doors and inviting children, families and the local community to enjoy fun activities and find out more about the activities typically on offer in our regular sessions.

Playweek is also a chance to celebrate play and have some fun! Play is fundamental to children’s development and it is especially vital in the early years as the main way that children learn about the world around them. During the event there will be lots of opportunities for children to take part in fun and interesting activities, including messy play, games and even a teddy bears’ picnic.

Sibford Tots and Babes organisers said “We are really looking forward to holding our Playweek event and welcoming children and families from the local community to our setting. It is a chance for parents to find out about what is on offer, for everyone to have fun and to celebrate this great local group.”

Playweek is the Pre-school Learning Alliance’s annual celebration of pre-schools and early years settings. During Playweek thousands of Alliance members throughout England will be holding events which highlight the fundamental importance of play for children’s learning and development – an ethos the Alliance has championed for over 40 years.
