It’s good to listen

Dec 25 2020

Whilst 2020 has been a time of upheaval and reflection for many, what did we really learn from our children during these unchartered times? Children know more about themselves and our world than we often give them credit for.  It was therefore wonderful to observe the comfort and ease felt as they returned to nursery after the first lockdown earlier this year.

Being a mum in London, I’ve found I’m on a constant search for events, and spoilt for choice most days, with activities happening in local libraries, churches and children’s centres. But as a new mum with a rapidly growing son, I find we’re both up for something a bit different, and I love finding those regular events that take something interactive and leave us both feeling we’ve achieved something before our day has even started! That’s why I’m delighted to be involved in the Royal Albert Hall’s new Storytelling and Music sessions for 0-4 year olds.
