Messy Playtime

After lunch I went along to the Children's Centre at Lordswood Infants just in time for Messy Playtime! Donna, the Centre's co-ordinator, is amazing. Her sheer energy and enthusiasm for the Centre was incredible and I asked her several times when she found time to sleep! The number of programmes she runs is phenomenal and the support services that the Centre gives are clearly invaluable to many parents in the local community. The Centre's aim is to provide a stimulating environment for children and their families from birth to five. As a result they want to contribute towards a better start in life for all children, with new opportunities for parents and carers and create a stronger and safer community. Given what I saw today I have no doubt they will achieve that aim. And of course, everyone looked like they were having such a great time that I couldn't help but have a little go at Messy Playtime myself:
