Playgroup at Coxhill Manor

The Intergenerational Playgroup ‘Play Together’ is proving to be a great success at Coxhill Manor care home in Woking.  The sessions are held twice a month  – the first and third Tuesdays of the month 10.30 – 12 noon.

Relationships are becoming established and a lot of our residents love to see the children.  We start with half an hour of free play and catch up followed by story time and refreshments.  We then always have a sing song where everyone joins in – the children make sure all our residents have a percussion instrument too before we start.  It’s great fun as not only are we singing the songs and rhymes we sang to our children,  but we are also teaching the parents and children some of our favourite sing-a- long songs  too such as ‘Daisy Daisy’, ‘How much is that Doggie in the Window’ and the Coxhill favourite ‘You are my Sunshine’

The bubble machine is an absolute winner – the children LOVE the bubbles – and we love watching the excitement on the faces when the bubbles come out. 

Two of our ladies have kindly offered to bring in their babies and spend quality time with a few of our residents who sometimes aren’t able to come to the sessions – but who we know love children and babies.  

We are looking forward to the warmer weather when we can hold our sessions outside and enjoy the beautiful gardens here at Coxhill – and the children can enjoy outdoor play…and more bubbles!

But as ever we do realise one size doesn’t fit all – so we make sure there is always something else on offer too for the residents – often crossword with a G&T in Garden Wing!

At Coxhill Manor care home in Woking we provide residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 58 residents.
