The Owl Tree Children’s Café CIC in Gosforth, Newcastle was registered as a Community Interest Company (CIC) in October 2018.
A CIC is a “not for profit” social enterprise, meaning our primary objective is to address the issues faced by parents and carers of pre-school aged children, in particular relation to social isolation and affordability.
Our mission at the Owl Tree Children’s Café is to provide a safe, fun, welcoming and affordable environment where children can grow and parents can socialise with other parents.
Our vision is to provide a space where relationships can foster and peer support can be encouraged. We want to support families with pre-school aged children through the often challenging stages they face.
Our values are: affordability, value for money and community.
The Challenge And Reward Book
A big part of the café is our interactive song time. We believe that singing for young children is a key part of their development.
Following the covid19 pandemic and the introduction of our online session, we wanted to help parents and children learn and play at home, using the same “theme based song centred” planning that we use in our setting.
The book is a 12 topic craft and activity book aimed at children between 18 months and 5 years approx. The book comes with a pull out A3 poster of a tree and 12 themed owl stickers so each time your child completes a theme / topic, they can add an owl sticker to their tree until they have their very own owl tree.
We hope that you enjoy this challenge book and that it provides entertainment, quality time and the you are challenged by something new. We hope that your little ones have fun, can be proud of their achievements and learn some new skills and songs along the way.
We have included crafts and activities that can be enjoyed by children of multiple ages so it is suitable for older siblings and ones that are not too technical. First and foremost we include activities that can be done with things from around the house or with minimal purchases.
The book comes with an additional craft pack which is designed to make lives easier. It is sold as an optional extra as you may well have many of these items at home already and we want to keep costs down.
The Challenge And Reward Book £5.95 and the Craft Pack £20 can be purchased from here: https://theowltreechildrenscafe.co.uk/challenge-and-reward-book/
All profits go directly back in to the Owl Tree Children’s Café CIC.
