21615ff211c60b43d866a2b2bca320da_XLOn 10th June Bingley Bright Sparks did the Big Toddle 2015!

Last week Bingley Bright Sparks; a Parent, Babies & Toddler group organised by Bingley Grammar School,took part in the UK's biggest charity event for the under 5s: Barnardo's Big Toddle. The Big Toddle is a short sponsored walk with all the proceeds going to help the UK's most disadvantaged toddlers. This was the group's fifth toddle, and the theme was "Pirates".

Our little Pirates walked from Crossflatts to the Five Rise Locks in Bingley and back again, where the Year 12 Health and Social Care students had hidden treasure for them to find on the way. The 'toddlers' ranged from 3 weeks old to 4 years and all looked fantastic in their Pirate outfits.

The playgroup has also been nominated by the Preschool Learning Alliance for a 'best practice' award at the forthcoming Bradford Libraries Rhyme Challenge Celebration Event.

New members always receive a warm welcome at Bingley Bright Sparks. Sessions are 9-11am on Mondays and Wednesdays (term time only). Every session has themed activities, a role play corner, free play and singing, which are led by an experienced Childcare Tutor and supported by students studying Childcare courses at Bingley Grammar School.
