Before I get started, I would like to congratulate all the new families on Cortes and welcome you to come to our groups anytime to connect with other parents and little people. Little people love babies and babies love little people!!! Gorge Hall Monday 10:30-12:30, Mansons Hall Wednesday 10:30-12:30.
The Parents and Tots Playgroups in Whaletown and Mansons has received funds from the Literacy Now grants (thanks to all that worked on those grants!)and I am eager to start ordering new items for the groups. One of my requests is dress up clothing/costumes. Both groups are in need of these things, however I have been disappointed with the options and the costs that I have found in catalogs. I am hoping there are some families out there with old Halloween costumes or dress up like accessories collecting dust or that are unneeded. Any donations of this kind would be greatly appreciated and would allow for the funds to be put towards other items. Whaletown Playgroup received funding for a rug to help create a warm space, thanks to Mary and the Success Under Six funding. It has been a wonderful addition creating a more comfortable and colourful environment.
If you have anything that you would like to donate, please give me a call (0187) or you could drop by either hall during playgroup hours.
So much love to all the families who take part in our groups. It is a gift to watch these children develop and form friendships.
