Parent and Toddler Group
The Parent and Toddler group meets at Halwill Baptist Hall and is open to any child from birth up to 3. It is an informal setting where parents and carers can meet and chat while the children play and make friends. Sessions run on Monday and Thursday mornings during term-time between 9.45 and 12 noon. Each session costs £2 for one child, plus £1 for siblings. For more details either drop into a session or call Kath Cullimore on 07817243539.
Moving on to school
Most children who attend Scallywags will move on to Halwill Primary School in the September following their 4th birthday. We have established strong links with the school and regularly take our children to join the reception class for some free playtime. We also have a small gardening plot down at the school where we grow our own fruit, vegetables and flowers.
Devon County Council usually write to parents inviting applications for a school place, in the Autumn term preceding the child starting school. We will also have information at Scallywags around this time. Most children start in the September but parents may wish to defer their child's place until the term of the child's 5th birthday.
For further information regarding the primary school you can visit their website at www.thecareyfederation.co.uk or contact the office on 01409 221476.
