Toddler group closed temporarily

Toddler group closed temporarily due to COVID-19

  • It's with a very sad heart I have to tell you that in light on tonight's statement from the Prime Minister (16.03.2020) we feel we should close toddlers until the situation changes.
  • Please don't feel alone as we all can with small people, please use this group to share worries, gripes and funny things.
  • Families and the economy may get very stretched, If you or anyone else finds themselves in a position where you can't put food on the table please direct message us, we cannot promise you that we can solve it all but we can try.
  • Finally please know that we are praying for you all and the country and will happily pray for specific requests if you direct message us.
  • Take care, we will miss you 🙂
