In the lead up to Christmas, just to add to the general excitement we will be theming each of our family sessions so...

Friday 19 December - Christmas in the Kitchen
Come and help us make festive treats and pies for the party.

Saturday 20 December - Christmas Party
11am to 1pm, 1.45pm to 3.45pm
Santa is on his way!
Come and join us, dressing up is optional but we'd love to see more elves and angels through out doors. Please email as soon as possible or call us on 0131 476 4506 to let us know which party you will be coming along to and the names and ages of your children and their siblings.

Monday 22 December - Wrap up Warm!
It's time to give your favourite Christmas jumpers or onesies an outing - prizes for the best dressed.

Tuesday 23 December - Christmas Crack a Joke Day
Apparently it's the way you tell them, so see if you can make our play team smile. We will also be doing face painting.

Wednesday 24 December Christmas Karaoke
Spend the morning with us blasting out your favourite Christmas tunes 

Have a fantastic holiday!

Parents Forum
