regular Holiday Club events that are subsidised or in
many cases free. Every group member will receive our

Where and when are the group events held?
Seedlings pre-school play sessions are held every (term
time) Monday and Thursday morning from 9.30am to 11.30am
in Reeth Memorial Hall on Arkengarthdale Road, next to
Reeth Garage. These sessions are facilitated by our play
leader who is assisted by parent helpers. Other holiday
and special occasion events are made available to
members throughout the year at various locations.
What does a play session consist of?
A programme of indoor and outdoor events and themed play
sessions is planned by our play leader. Details of this
can be found in our regular members’ e-zine newsletter
and via the Seedlings website at

educate and entertain your children. A healthy snack
with drink for the children and Tea/Coffee for the
parents is provided at each session.
