Wonderland community centre is a safe and secure space in the heart of St Helens that allows groups of people to meet, relax, learn and empower themselves. Our parent and Toddler group sessions run 3 times a week to enable children and new parents who have been particularly isolated during the pandemic and who would otherwise have difficulty meeting others in a similar situation. The group is an informal gathering which is overseen by a volunteer who is peadeatric first aid trained and has knowledge of child development through work. We offer activities each session that is based on the EYFS frame work and gives a sense of structure that parents and children enjoy. Refreshments are available and a scheduled healthy and nutritious snack will be provided for all who attend. We are open to everyone.

What we'll deliver:

  • 3 sessions per week
  • Clean and sanitised educational toys
  • Activities that are based on educational, physical and social development skills

Why it's a great idea:

Children will be able to socialise with other children outside of the home setting and parents can get together for advice and support as well as a deserved cup of tea. The activities and toys that will be provided will have developmental benefits for all toddlers. Our project will bring people from all walks of life within our community together to socialise and connect. Parents will be able to seek advice and be signposted to various agencies when needed. We hope to be able to branch into more specific groups in the future such as teen parents and parents with additional needs. Parents will be able to access other services that are housed within the centre such as employment help, volunteering and make connections with others that will help empower them.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying educational and developmental toys for children to use in our groups
  • Providing healthy and nutritious snacks at every session
