Wiggle and Giggle at Harold Hill Library

  • Location: Harold Hill Library, 19a Farnham Road, Harold Hill RM3 8ED

Wiggle and Giggle sessions for children from 2 to 4 years. Term time only.

Singing nursery rhymes has been proven to help children develop their language and pre-literacy skills.

By using rhythmic language and repetition children learn how words are formed, supporting the early stages of language development.

Using actions with songs improves hand-eye co-ordination.

The sessions are a shared time between parent/carer and your child.

They can be of value for families who have English as a second language.
