Debutots is a nationwide franchise network established in 2003 and the Swindon branch was launched in September 2008 with 3 parent and child classes. One year on we have 4 growing parent and child classes, two after school clubs (Oliver Tomkins CE Infants and Tregoze Infants Schools) and a fortnightly childminding group.
We've also done some fantastic workshops in Swindon schools, including two days at Wroughton Infants as part of their Eco Week.
Debutots has also been very busy with children's birthday parties, with Pirate Scallywag and other fun characters travelling all over Swindon and as far away as Malmesbury
This summer saw the launch of the new Debutots Support Through Story programme, designed especially for childminders.
We are taking on a new practitioner this term who will be a huge asset to the team, and will help us expand further into Swindon schools and nurseries, as well as opening new parent and child classes in the new year.
One of our highlights this year was raising £177 for children's communication charity 'I Can' though their Chatterbox Challenge.
Weekly parent and child classes for children aged 6 months to 5 years explore original stories through dramatic play, developing confidence and imagination. Currently running in Old Town and Abbey Meads, contact Jenni to book a free trial session.
Sessions in schools and nurseries for ages 1 to 7 years can include weekly classes, afterschool clubs, one off workshops and parties, and are carefully linked to the EYFS and Key Stage 1 Curriculum.
