Take 5 Cafés

Suitable for Expectant parents and babies up to 6 months
Frequency Weekly 1 to 1.5 hour session

Take 5 cafés are FREE informal small group sessions where expectant parents and parents/carers with children under 6 months are welcome.

Each session is part of a rolling programme based on the five to thrive approach which highlights five key activities:

Respond · Cuddle · Relax · Play · Talk

Staff provide practical advice, support and ideas for activities helping to support healthy personal, social and emotional development in your baby.

Advice and support is available at the cafés on all aspects of parenting such as routines, breastfeeding and infant feeding including starting solids, crying and sleep concerns. Staff are able to signpost you to other children’s centre activities such as baby massage, benefit and housing advice, and baby groups.
