Toddler playgroup in Plymouth gets go-ahead after securing funding
MOTHERS in Whitleigh have secured funding to begin a weekly toddlers playgroup.

The group will meet at St Chad's Church on Whitleigh Green every Tuesday between 9.30-11am.
It costs £1 for the first child from a family and 50p for every additional child. The entry price includes the provision of a healthy snack.

Stephanie Aitkin, one of the founders of the playgroup, said it will be a "stay and play" morning with parents responsible for their children. However, she said educational learning will be organised with toddlers following agreed pre-school learning frameworks.
The group will be aimed at children who can walk but are still below pre-school age.
The Children's Centre in Whitleigh is initially lending toys and other resources while the organisers are accumulating their own using the secured grant money. The Children's Centre has also provided them with £200 to support volunteer training and to help them carry out CRB checks.
