Introducing Barty Bear

We would like to welcome our new member to Pathways; Barty has been travelling around and has chosen Pathways to stay. Unfortunately he is of no fixed address so each week we will ask a family to home him for the weekend or an evening.

Barty likes to keep a diary of his travels so if you can take a picture or do a drawing of his stay in his book he would be very happy. We also have a smaller companion for when you go on holiday that will fit into any small bag.

Indoor Shoes

Please remember to have a spare pair of indoor shoes or slippers at Pathways now it’s getting muddy and wet outside especially if they wear welly boots to Pre-school.
