The PlayTalkRead bus is coming to Midlothian

Between Monday, May 9 and Friday, May 13 the bus will pitch up at leisure centres and libraries across the county.

The bus hosts free storytelling and rhythm sessions and a range of play and activity sessions for children, aged 0 to five years, and their mums, dads and carers, to promote and raise awareness of the benefits of positive parental engagement,

The aims is that parents and carers can build upon the ideas and activities sessions at home with their children.

The activities are open on a drop-in and informal basis. If you have any questions or to enquire about group visits please contact Sarah Sibbert on 0131 664 2308 or email [email protected] in advance of the date in mind.

Unfortunately, as a service aimed at parent and carers, the PlayTalkRead bus is not always able to accommodate nursery groups, however the service would appreciate it if nurseries promote PlayTalkRead to their families, and encourage the parents to bring their little ones along.
