In Spring 2019 two THRiVE Early Years events were held for children and parents from early years settings in Rathcoole and Monkstown. The events were held in Abbots Cross Presbyterian and Newtownabbey Methodist Mission church halls. Lots of fun learning activities were facilitated by THRiVE early years settings and other local providers. The children and parents/ carers got to enjoy arts and crafts, sensory play, learning games, stories, songs and dancing and much more and Tesco Newtownabbey provided healthy snacks for everyone. At the end of the events all the children were presented with a special THRiVE nursery rhyme book. They then watched a nursery rhyme video in which they had all starred and they loved seeing themselves on the big screen!
