As a mum to a toddler, the school holidays seem to arrive out of nowhere and take me by surprise. You wouldn’t think us pre-school mums would need to think about the school holidays, but many of the baby & toddler classes only run throughout term time.
But do not despair just yet! There are still things to do and places to go with your little one over the school holidays.
Here are a few places to take little ones over the school holidays in Epsom that I’ve heard about. If you’ve heard of any others please pop a quick note in the comments section below. I’d love to hear of other classes & activities!
