« Chamcats » (Protestant Church, Chamonix)

🌈 « ChamCats Carers, Mums n Tots » takes place in the ⛪️ Salle Paroissiale (Church Hall) of the Presbytery of the Protestant Church near the train station, in the centre of Chamonix.  The playgroup was originally set up by the lovely Barbara and is open to all babies and toddlers (and parents, grand-parents, minders . . .) until they reach a school-going age. There are plenty of toys and books to keep little ones busy while the grown-ups chat, drink coffee and tea and eat cake and biscuits! (home-made cake and cookies gratefully consumed! 😉). This Chamonix playgroup is especially lovely in the spring and summer, when all adults and children tend to spill out onto the lawn;
