Trust to launch ‘Tadpole Tales’ sessions at its Wolseley HQ

The county’s largest nature conservation charity is launching new ‘Tadpole Tales’ sessions to give youngsters the chance to immerse themselves in popular children’s books through interactive outdoor storytelling.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is launching the new monthly sessions in January 2020 at its Wolseley Centre headquarters, near Rugeley.

‘Tadpole Tales’ will give youngsters aged 18 months to five years old the opportunity to hear some classic children’s stories through outdoor storytelling, while exploring nature at the same time.

The hour long sessions will take place across Wolseley’s 26 acre site. The first session will be Winnie The Pooh on Wednesday 15th January.

Katie Shipley, Wildchild Officer for Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said: “Following the success of our themed Nature Tots sessions, we’ve expanded our offering for toddlers and young children by launching ‘Tadpole Tales.’

“It’s a new exciting venture for us and one we hope families will be interested by.

“Our Wolseley site is 26 acres and is full of interesting features and wildlife friendly gardens, so we thought it’d be the perfect place to hold the interactive outdoor storytelling sessions while exploring nature.”

‘Tadpole Tales’ will run on the third Wednesday of each month between 1pm and 2pm and costs £3.50 per child to attend. Siblings under 18 months are free with a paying sibling.
