What's It All About?
It is a fun, interactive and educational half hour for all children under 5 years old (plus their parents/carers). There are songs, fun activities, bubble time and of course great stories told with engaging story-telling. Your kids will love it! An exciting way to connect with families in the community! Every Thursday morning during term time above TAZZA COFFEE Shop, Storytime provides an all-inclusive, fun, friendly and safe environment for adults to bring their toddlers along to sing, play, listen to stories and see what surprises are in the bag!
A wonderful opportunity for adults to connect, for kids to have fun with new friends and for the church to support and encourage local families that God loves them and we do too.
When Is It?
STORYTIME takes place every Thursday morning (during term time - following Sutton Schools dates).
There are two sessions each week. The first running from 10:30am - 11:00am and the second from 11:30am - 12:00pm. Both sessions will have the same content for that particular day, so regardless of which one is more convenient for you and your child to attend, you won't miss out on any of the fun.
Where Is It?
It takes place on the first floor of the building that TAZZA COFFEE calls home, namely 188 High Street, Sutton SM1 1NR. The large room is kitted out each week as a story-telling paradise (I mean where else would you find inflatable palm trees?)
I Heard It Was FREE?
Yes, all sessions are completely FREE to attend but numbers at each session are limited. This makes sure that every child gets the most out of the half hour. Simply collect an 'entry ticket' from TAZZA COFFEE on the morning of the session that you would like to attend. The 'tickets' will be available from 10:15am - 11:30am, on a 'first-come first-served' basis.
What Else Do I Need To Know?
TAZZA COFFEE clears a reserved space at the back of the coffee shop each Thursday morning for the safe storage of prams and buggies, so you don't need to worry about taking any of that upstairs with you. However, PLEASE collapse your pram/buggie so that it's easy to fit them all in - thanks!
How Long Has It Been Running?
STORYTIME has been running since 5th May 2011 and the weekly sessions have proven to be well received and well supported, entertaining approximately 50 children and adults on a regular basis. This is why we have now launched two sessions per week, so that we can accomodate and entertain more children each Thursday. We were also delighted to win a £50 voucher in the Sutton “Take Part Take Pride” awards last year for STORYTIME.
