is run by the Ferryfield Committee. Your children will be looked after by Playgroup
staff, but it should be stressed that this is not an education session and no food will be provided. Activities will be provided for your child to choose from.

Committee. Your children will be looked after by Playgroup staff, but it should

Ferryfield Playgroup Lunch Club will provide your child with several activities for their entertainment. They will be able to help with washing and drying up plates from lunch, watch videos or listen to story
tapes and play tabletop activities such as board games and puzzles. Occasionally
we may have visitors join the Lunch Club to tell us about their work. This may
include policemen, fireman and greengrocers from the supermarket among others. Also
a quiet area will be provided where children can relax and read. Blankets and
chairs will be provided. Please advise a member of staff if you do not wish your
child to sleep.

are required to fill in a supplementary registration form for the Lunch Club and Early Risers (see below). The use of either Early Risers or the Lunch Club is independent of Playgroup sessions. Also, while you can take advantage of both Early Risers and Lunch Club you are not required to use one
if you use the other.
If you would
like your child to take part in Lunch Club to allow time for an appointment or other one-off basis, please speak to a member
of staff to see if a place is available on the day you require.
