Before you sign up you need to know that I have made a few changes to Rhymetime, which I hope will be temporary but are very important.
In-person sessions are at Bedminster Methodist Church Hall
Monday 9.15am toddlers
Mondays 10am toddlers
Mondays 10.45am babies
Thursdays 10am toddlers
Thursdays 10.45am babies
The term dates can be seen in my online shop… keep reading the terms and conditions first!
Pay in advance
I am asking everyone to pay for a term at a time at a cost of £35 (£5 a session). This secures your place in a small session (maximum ten families per group). If there are only a few weeks left of the term, then I will ask you to pay £5 per week for the remaining weeks.
Adults will have to wear face-coverings (unless exempt) as we are in a Community Hall. I will be wearing one of those very cool visors! Please wear your own face covering but if you do forget, I might be able to give you a disposable one.
The doors and windows will be open throughout the session. The radiators will be on, but dress appropriately.
Socially distance: one adult, one child
The Council have been very clear that the children will have to socially distance, just as the adults do. I realise how tricky this can be, but it is very important to stay 2m away from other households. Please do not sign up for the sessions if your child will not be able to stay with you, and away from other children/adults for the half hour of Rhymetime.
For this reason, I suggest that you only bring one child unless you also have a non-mobile baby. Obviously you can’t guarantee that your little one won’t run around, but if they do, I’ll expect you to swoop them up and encourage them to sit with you. If they can’t do this, then you can play in the church garden instead, but you won’t be able to stay in the room. I will also be running online sessions on Wednesday mornings so if you feel the temporary COVID-safe Rhymetime is too tricky for your child, then tune in to that instead.
Track and Trace
When you pay, you will need to provide me with your name and phone number. It would be helpful for me if you also let me know your children’s names and ages but this is not for track and trace purposes. I will keep this data for 21 days after the last session. I will also use your number to text you if I have to cancel any sessions due to illness.
There will be hand sanitiser available for you to use as soon as you enter the hall.
To avoid overcrowding, there will be one family in the toilets at a time.
I will be singing loud and clear and strumming my guitar, but I will be asking adults to listen and keep any singing very quiet.
Feel ill? Stay at home.
If you or your child start to feel unwell during the session, please leave the hall and look after yourself at home. Contact me if you are self-isolating and I will provide you with a code to access the Wednesday sessions online.
