Tracey, our parent worker has been very busy trying to keep a number of littlies and their parents occupied in the most unique ways!
Tracey posts a video daily to our group page with different activities the children can undertake for under £1 and our parents have been proudly posting their children’s creativity! This has included a start of lockdown craft pack and Easter pack that Tracey has individually packed and delivered to all of our parents.
Tracey is also running a weekly bedtime story with the children on Facebook so that they can jump in their PJ’s and watch Tracey as she takes them on a journey through a new story. The children are so happy to see Tracey given that they usually meet up with her at least once weekly so to have this connection is really important to them. To compliment this, we have asked our littlies to draw pictures for their friends that they are missing, encouraging connection for them also.
We have also been sharing tips, idea’s, home-schooling advice and an ear to listen on our parent’s page because lets face it, lockdown with small children is HARD! We are lucky enough to have a whole wealth of professions in our mentors and each bring an individual skill to the table, this has been shown during these testing times and mentors have really come into their own in these settings, sharing factual knowledge, advice and guidance.
