Play Group

Ticknall Play Group is a non-profit organisation for under fives. We are dedicated to providing a fun environment for all the children (and adults) who attend. It’s all about getting little people to play and have fun.

Where? Ticknall Village Hall, Ingleby Lane, Ticknall. There is a large free car park.

When? Thursday mornings, 10am to noon.

About the Sessions. We run each session with a craft activity, plentiful snacks for children and adults alike and a wealth of toys including but not limited to:

  • Climbing frame and slide
  • Play kitchen
  • Dolls house and workman’s station
  • Farm animals
  • Happy People
  • Peppa pig Car and train tracks
  • Plenty of ‘ride-on’ toys, buggies and prams
  • Balance beam
  • Ball pool
  • Musical Instruments
  • A reading corner
  • A sectioned off area for babies not yet crawling

We continue to rotate and replenish our toys regularly. They are all cleaned as part of our cleaning rota.

The session is not formal and kids play freely with each other. We pause for a snack at 11am. With all children able to sit together to encourage socialisation. We provide juice and water alongside a vast array of snacks that the children love.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided for the Grown-ups.

Supervision. It is a stay and play session so adults are responsible for the care and safety of the children they bring to the group at all times.

How much? £3.00 for parent and child over 1 + £1.00 per extra child. £1.00 for children under 12 months. This helps meet the costs of the hall, craft, drinks, snacks, insurances, new equipment and parties for special occasions.

The Play Group Team. The group is totally voluntary run. There is a small active core of mums and carers who take it in turns to organise the hall before each session. Come along for a play, everyone is very welcome and it’s a lovely way to meet new people, for both children and adults alike.

Join Us! We do need more people involved so if you would like to help, please get in touch.
