Music Time takes place at The Oval Tavern in East Croydon the first Saturday of every month in three month blocks.
Sessions will take place 11am -12noon on the following Saturdays:
About the sessions
Sessions start at 11am and you are welcome from 10.45 to get settled and get a coffee if you like.
The sessions are open to everyone, including children with additional needs or sensory empairment.
Music Time features a mix of traditional children's songs, acoustic covers and some Jenny originals along with puppets, instruments and some simple sensory activities. We sing, we play and we have fun!
Sessions are led by Jenny Lockyer, an experienced performer and playworker with over 24 years experience of working with early years children in all sorts of venues.
I say the sessions are for 0-3year olds but if your child is slightly older and would benefit from coming please bring them along and see how it goes. As long as the babies aren't trampled on and your child is engaged by the activities I'm happy.
Wheelchairs and bigger buggies can gain access to the garden and lower level via the side gate but please note that the pub has no official disabled access to the lower floor where the toilets are. If access is an issue please contact me to dicuss how we can help.
We have the pub to ourselves for the session until official pub opening time at 12 when you can stay on afterwards to chill out and have some lunch. I encourage you to buy food and drink at The Oval Tavern as not only is it delicious but Esther the manager is not charging me to use the space and it's part of the agreement that I invite you to sample the menu....
There is also space for buggies,baby changing, and high chairs are available.
