Hundreds of toddlers and their families have enjoyed a fantastic fun-packed, activity-filled summer thanks to Exmouth Children’s Centre.

There has been something for everyone this summer with the new baby group giving lots of new mums and their babies the chance to get to know each other.

While popular sessions like ‘whatever the weather’, ‘bosum buddies’ and the ‘get up and go’ sessions at the tennis centre have seen kids take part in activities including painting and ‘hunting’ for objects including leaves, shells, pine cones, and driftwood.

And this year the centre has expanded to hold sessions in surrounding villages including Knowle and Woodbury and held weekly events at the National Trust’s A La Ronde.

Manager of the centre Rachel Lorum said: “We have received a fantastic response from the community and it’s been great fun.

“We have responded to feed back from parents and how they wanted their children to spend more time outside – and we have done just that.

“It has proved really popular with as many as 40 families taking part at any one time.”

They have even been getting feedback from the youngest toddlers: “We have been listening to children’s thoughts and opinions about what they like to do outdoors, using photos, ‘feely boxes’ and happy and sad face stickers to give children who are not yet talking ways of telling us their opinions,” she added.

Families can also get practical help, support and advice on any aspect of family life and get information on matters such as child development, parenting, and advice on how to stay safe and healthy.

The centre is on two sites, Moorfield Road and Exeter Road, Exmouth and call 01395 226789 for more information.
