Our children who are not doing playball and are in session at the same time will continue to have the same garden and classroom space as they would normally as Playball will be in our extra garden. Tadpoles also have added a 'Music and Movement' and an 'Up and Active' session during each session that the children can join in with if they would like to which is free and part of our session. So all of the children will have lots of fun!
