|Mother and Toddler Group for Asylum Seekers and Refugees|
This project consists of organising a weekly group for asylum seeker and refugee mothers and their under 5’s. It is held at The Hyde Childern's Centre once a week for 2 hours and it provides them with a supportive learning environment.
The mums learn English through reading, singing, activity, craft and free play sessions with their babies and toddlers. A separate ESOL lesson whilst the children are given a snack and entertained by volunteers is included.
The group’s focus will be on educating the mums on areas such as learning through play, accessing library services, reading bed time stories, singing nursery rhymes in English, healthy eating for toddlers, dental hygiene, applying for nursery places etc.
External guests include a child nutritionalist whose 5 week programme would be of enormous benefit to the group.
The group runs on Mondays 10:00am -12:00pm (during term time only)
Venue: The Hyde Children's Centre, Hyde Crescent, NW9 7EY
