Mini - Me Summer Activity


At the New Parents meeting you will be given a Mrs Bould and Mrs Hunt Mini-Me.  These Mini-me's like to go on all sorts of adventures. Your child could introduce them to their toys, take them to the park or to meet their grandparents.  Please take some pictures of what the Mini-Me's get up to and they will form some of our 'getting to know you' discussions in September.  Email any pictures to 

Please note this is an optional activity, if your child isn't interested that is fine!
