Toddler Group - St Martin’s (CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS) 

As some of you will be aware, we sadly said farewell to our Toddler Group in July at St Mary’s. Thank you very much to Sue Bridger and Helen Spence for organising and running our Sparks Toddler Club.

There is  a Toddler Club at St Martin’s of Tours Church, Chelsfield. The group runs every Tuesday morning during
term time, 10.30am-12 noon, £2 per baby/child. They welcome expectant mums, new parents, grandparents, carers, child-minders, everyone is welcome! The group is run by a team of friendly volunteers from the Church and Chelsfield village. The session offers an hour of free play, with refreshments, followed by singing with action songs and percussion instruments. Each week there is a different craft activity and playdough available, plus the usual toys. Carers should support their little ones in sharing, taking turns and making new friends.
No need to book a place, just turn up.
