Is it really two weeks since Baby and Toddler fest over at JW3? Only just getting ‘pen to paper’ on this one. You know it is an event that is dear to our heart, hands-on and we get to meet all of you, which we love, and hundreds of you came. This year we taught baby CPR, healthy eating whooshing on through to creative story telling, face painting, puppet shows and lots of stuff for parents and parents to be.
We teach baby CPR year round to private groups in community centres, nurseries and family homes

We were especially interested to hear from dads and the person who is away from home longest on work days, the one whose juggling working long hours and really wanting to take part in parenting in a meaningful way. It isn’t easy if you are going out at 8am and returning home at 8pm but handing it to the guys and gals on this one. You are being really innovative. What it has done for us is made us really think about how we can incorporate innovative programmes that everyone can access even if they don’t have the time to.
‘It’s sort of parenting maths -No time day or evening
doesn’t equal not interested’
We’ve been thinking hard about giving you ways to access sessions and dip in and out when you can even if that means on the bus from your phone. And we know you don’t mean scrolling through a forum – we love them but on limited time scrolling through a thread when people start to get shouty isn’t really that much use. So the key for us in finding for you stuff that is Useful and Accessible. So hold the thought we’ll be back to you and if you’d like to get involved drop us a line. The best advice always comes from the people who are currently accessing services.
That segways neatly into our new online platform coming early in the autumn. We already offer training on line but this is something quite different and not just for people who want to gain a qualification (though they will definitely be looked after as we add more and more sessions). Tell us what you want us to tell you, errrrrrr does that make sense? You know what we mean!
If you are a professional childcarer or would like to become one we will be having nifty launch offers too so make sure to join our mailing list
