On Thursday 17th July the Duckling and Cygnets classes are holding their annual Teddy Bears Picnic. Nayland Playgroup children and their families are invited to join them for a Teddy Bear hunt in the woods to be followed by a picnic in the Duckling and Cygnets garden. 

Parents who wish to join in the fun should return at 11.25am to collect children attending playgroup that morning. If you are unable to attend your child will be accompanied by Woodland Corner staff but should be picked up at their usual collection time. If your child does not normally attend on a Thursday you are welcome to attend with your child and should meet in the Duckling garden at 11.30am.

Don’t forget picnics & Teddy Bears!
