Strathblane Fun Hut

The Fun Hut is Strathblane and Blanefield's pre-school group catering for newborns to school age children (0-5 year olds), not forgetting the parents, grandparents, carers and bumps!

There are lots of stimulating toys and play areas for the children in sight of the adults, who can relax and enjoy a coffee and a chat two mornings a week. A healthy snack and a drink are provided for the kids. For those children 2½ years and older there is a play leader led one-hour session in an adjacent room, involving educational and craft activities. As well as providing the older children with more age specific activities, this has the added benefit of helping to prepare them for nursery too.

The mums and carers have fun as well with various fundraising events (we are a registered charity) throughout the year including ceilidhs, barbecues, quiz nights and not to mention the odd purely social night.

The Fun Hut is much more than a mother and toddler group. It is a great way for the kids and parents⁄carers to have fun, relax and get to know one another in a friendly and safe environment.

We are open on Monday and Friday mornings from 9.15am - 11.15am during the school term (calendar below) at the Kirk Rooms, across the road from the church.

Session Fees payable on the day:
First session is FREE of charge
0-2½ year olds - £2
2½-5 year olds - £3
Annual Family Membership £30 / £15 if joining part way through the year
Half price session fees for younger siblings and childminders. Complimentary Tea & Coffee

No need to book, drop in any time! We are always welcoming new faces, so please come along to the Hut for some Fun!

**AUTUMN TERM 2020**

Hello Everyone,
We hope you are all well and coping with parenting in these strange times.
We wanted to let you know that we are still unsure of when we can safely re-open Fun Hut.
Although schools are going back as normal(ish) at the start of term, we are not yet able to re-open Fun Hut.
The government guidelines are ever changing and we are very aware that many people who use the Fun Hut are grandparents and we want to make sure everyone stays safe.
We had sadly said goodbye to our amazing playworkers Tamara and Abby before lockdown, and are looking at replacing them soon. (Please email Amy if you have any recommendations as we have one person on board but still looking for another).
Currently we are working out what cleaning procedures may need to be in place, and the option of starting back as an outdoor group.
We are also exploring options of limitations on numbers of attendees and pre booking, but are aware that part of the benefit of fun hut is the ability to just drop in. We need to work out if it is financially viable to run the sessions at limited capacity or not.
We really appreciate the help we have had from the local community in regards to fundraising and promise you we will do our best to get fun hut back up and running when it is safe to do so.
Thank you for your continued support and keep an eye out for toddler craft and play activities to do on our Facebook page!
