Happy Hippos is St. Augustine’s toddler group which runs on a Wednesday from 9.30am – 11.30am and 1.00pm – 3.00pm. We have on average 40 children in the morning session and 25 children in the afternoon session. The children come with their mums, dads, grannys, granddads and childminders.

Our highlights this year have been our messy play tray with rice, pasta, hay or shredded paper to play with. We love our play dough, painting and craft and it’s great when the weather is good because we get out in the garden with our diggers and scooters. Oh and we mustn’t forget our snack and squash and a much earned cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit for the adults.

Our vision is that the group will continue to flourish, that we can continue to show God’s love to those who come along and that the Church Members will continue to support us either practically or through prayer.
