Beautiful Begnnings West Cumbria

Welcome to Beautiful Beginnings!



Weekly playgroup sessions at The Settlement, Maryport


TUESDAYS 10:30 am ~ 12:30 pm


All Welcome


We are a hand-crafted parent and child group based in West Cumbria and have now been running for 3 years. 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

  • Share ideas with other parents interested in natural parenting

We meet every Tuesday 1o.30 – 12.30pm at The Settlement in Maryport. All Welcome.

Each session has a weekly rhythm which goes something like this…

  • Welcome to everybody
  • Creative activity/ Free play
  • Tidy up time
  • Movement activity/ game
  • Story time
  • Walk outside in the garden
  • Song time
  • Bring your lunch to share a picnic
  • Good bye song

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!

Please contact Hatti or Clare for more details.
