Happy Hippos

Hippos is a place where under-5s can come to play, and carers can chat and be supported through the wonderful but challenging time of having a little one.

From September 2021, we have some new team members, some new toys and a slightly different format. Whether you’ve been before, or are finding us for the first time, everyone with an under-5 is welcome at Hippos.

What does a Hippos session look like?
We run from 9.30-11.15am every Wednesday morning except for school holidays.
Every week the format is the same…

Doors Open and Registration (from 9.30am)
We take basic contact and dietary details on the door. The cost is just £1 per session per child. You can pay cash on the door, or pay in advance or in arrears using a card. Bring your own cup with a lid for free tea and coffee!
Free play
We have lots of toys, big and small, plus crafts and building things in the main hall. There is also a quiet corner with books, and a special baby corner for the really little ones.
Snacks and drinks
The children help to tidy up so we can have a drink and an age-appropriate snack, provided free for all the children.
Songs and story
Then we all go through to the smaller hall to say hello to Buttons Hippo, sing songs (including Happy Birthday) and hear a story to round off the morning.
