Groups must be block booked as the programme follows on each week enabling the children to build their knowledge and understanding and their relationships in the group.  Group numbers are limited to 10 to ensure everyone feels seen and heard. 4-6 year olds MUST have an adult stay with them.  We feel this helps embed the learning and allows this to be continued at home.
Wednesdays at Lady of Lourdes Church, Swanland Road, Hessle (hall at the back) – 4.30-5.20 for 4-6 year olds, 5.30-6.30 for 7-11 year olds.
Booking is essential. Courses are £40 for the 6 week block. Bookings can be made by contacting me via the facebook page, telephone 07900920583 or email
