Children & Young People
A nationally recognized secondary school serving a wide and varied catchment area.
Tiddlywinks welcomes pre-school children aged 0-4 and their parents / careers every Wednesday morning during school term time. We have lots of fantastic toys for the children to explore in the safe and friendly surroundings of Caryford Hall. A snack is provided for the children and of course a cuppa for the grown-ups!
We were set up in 1995 by a group of mums who realised the importance of being able to get to know other parents, and for the children to socialise. There is no committee or one person in charge, instead the group is organised by all the parents/carers that attend.
It costs £2.50 per week (which includes fruit and biscuit snack and drink for the children, and tea, coffee and biscuits for the parents) and we are at Caryford Hall between 10 am and 12 midday on Wednesdays during term time.
If you’d like to find out more pop up and see us, or message us on Facebook by searching for Tiddlywinks – Castle Cary Baby and Toddler Group.
