Welcome to Beautiful Beginnings! We are a hand-crafted parent and child group based in West Cumbria and have now been running for over 1 year. Beautiful Beginnings was set up by Clare Cooper and Hatti Burt to provide an alternative group where like minded parents could meet and children can be involved in lots of free play as well as nourishing and creative activities.
We now have a lovely group of regulars who come to the group with children of all ages and we always welcome more families along!
Here is what Beautiful Beginnings has to offer:
Learn to make beautiful toys from recycled materials
Get involved with arts and crafts projects with your child
We are a breast feeding friendly playgroup with plenty of support from other breast feeding mums and NHS peer support
Share ideas with other parents interested in natural parenting
We meet every Thursday 1-3pm at The Settlement in Maryport.
Each session has a weekly rhythm which goes something like this…
- Welcome to everybody
- Creative activity/ Free play
- Tidy up time
- Song time/ Circle time
- Shared meal/ snack
- Walk outside in the garden
- Good bye song
All creative activities, meals, stories and songs will aim to be focused on the current season.
We also aim to build up a library of books/ magazines which reflect the ethos of the group for all families to have access to.
Local Home Schooling families welcome!
