A warm welcome awaits!
The Under 3's presents an unique opportunity to meet a wide variety of people from Stonehaven and the surrounding communities within the large hall at Fetteresso Church on Bath Street, Stonehaven. If you are new to the area it is an ideal opportunity to meet other parents with their first child or sometimes fourth child. We have two aims - Providing something for the adults (mothers, fathers, grandparents within travel distance); and a variety of things to develop youngsters such as numerous toys, jigsaws, and handicrafts to make a fathers day card or maybe something for Mum. Babies have a flexible mat to lie on and things to take their interest. You can attend more than one morning per week. There is no requirement to be a church member to attend this group.
We operate during the school terms and if the primary school is operating then we are open. We are open on the following days: Monday morning 10am to 11.30am; Tuesday morning 10am to 11.30am; and Friday morning 10am to 11.30am. Not everyone arrives near the start time, so if you are delayed just wander in. There is a suggested fee of £2 per each day you attend. If you are unable to pay due to circumstances then we will not ask for payment. Just speak to the leader.
In our modern world, many parents have a part time employment which influences which day they attend. Therefore some days are busier than others. If parents do not have relatives in the Stonehaven area, it is a good opportunity to make friends and have some chat about things parents like to ask or discuss. The children range from new babies, to crawlers, to toddlers and to explorers. We have space for prams. A responsible adult must accompany each family of young children.
A leader, attends each group to help set-up and clear away. Many hands tidy-up quicker, also set-up quicker. Refreshments and a small snack is provided midway through the morning.
