This group would not be possible without the help of our brilliant families who co-facilitate by helping out in so many ways. Most of our resources are donated for which we are grateful.

Dalton Tots is our toddler group based in the main hall every Tuesday 9am until 11am.
The group is run by Angela Beaumont, our School Community Liaison, and many committed parent volunteers who make this group a huge success.
Our families in the local community are always welcome and highly valued.
We have a friendly baby corner which is very popular. There is an arty/messy activity each week with good quality resources so that all our children are catered for from birth to 4.
We offer toast, fruit and mid-morning refreshments. We have a key message each week promoting shared communication and language skills. At the end of each session we have story/singing/ring games/music sessions.
Our lending book library is then open and encouraged to be used by all. Each child is provided with their own book bag.
There is a small charge of 50p per child (over one) At the end of each half term this pays for a trip to the play gym.

Progress is documented through the 'Toddler Tracker'
