NEW 'Stay and Play' sessions for parents and toddlers has been introduced at a rural school.
The Manifold Monkeys has been formed at Manifold Primary School in Warslow after a similar facility at the venue, run by the county council, folded.
Sarah Broadley, leader Manifold Preschool, explained: "As the Staffordshire Moorlands Children's Centre is no longer available in Warslow now, the parent and child sessions that they provided stopped leaving parents from the rural villages surrounding our pre-school with nowhere to go.
"So the staff at the pre-school have set up Manifold Monkeys which is held every Friday from 9.30am until 11.30 am for families with children from birth to five-years-old.
The Manifold Monkeys sessions, which started last month, cost £2.50 per family which includes a snack for the children and tea or coffee and biscuits for the parents and carers.
