Gaters is Tollgate’s parent and toddler group, which takes place at the church every Thursday during term-time, from 9.15 am to 11:15 am
Every week is different, but each session includes free play in the different themed areas of the hall, including a book corner, play-dough, happy-land and home corner. Younger babies have their own toys in a safe area where mums and dads can sit, while older children will enjoy the playhouse and patio area when the weather allows.
An important part of each session is a story time with content from the Bible, and singing of songs and rhymes.
Annual highlights include photo portraits, a teddy-bear picnic and the Mum’s meal, for that much needed evening off!
Gaters costs 50p per child each week and everybody is welcome.
