WELCOME TO THE GRANNY CLOUD
Members of the Granny Cloud interact with groups of children, engaging them in conversation and in activities of various kinds, such as reading and telling stories, craft activities, solving puzzles and exploring big questions. The role of the Granny includes provoking curiosity, asking questions, listening attentively and providing warm encouragement.
We invite you to explore the website and consider being involved with us in some way…

BECOME A 'GRANNY CLOUD CENTRE'

MAKE A DONATION
