First Steps

New name! Are you game?
Messy Mum's has been renamed ‘First steps' as lots of mums, dads, grannies, nannies, aunties and carers attend.  The group runs on Wednesdays 10.30am to noon during term times at St. Mary’s, Lenham.  We wanted our group name to better reflect the children we serve.  As babies develop, many first steps are taken - not just the pitter patter of tiny feet - and it's a joy to witness and hear about the variety of first steps children make.  Come and join our friendly, welcoming group, share your stories of first steps as the children play, sing, and get creative with craft activities.  Lifelong friendships have been established by the children and adults alike.  Are you game? Keep an eye out for the new logo as flyers will be circulating around the community soon.  We look forward to seeing you and your little treasures here at St. Mary’s!
