Alongside our family friendly cafe we run a variety of different courses at Coffee Tots and in ReNEW (next door but one to Coffee Tots), and can often provide a creche if needed.  We run play sessions for children too, which help improve their development and build confidence, whilst having fun; we're targeting the first 1000 days of each child's life to lay down the ground work to improving and optimising their development and outcome. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have changed the way we run our courses and play sessions, please message us for more information if you are interested in joining a course.  Our funding allows us to offer these free of charge to Coventry based parents who may feel isolated, are struggling with their mental health/anxiety and/or are on a low income.
