OPP OF THE DAY: Early Years Activity Leader, Dudley Canal Trust (Trips) Ltd

What’s involved?Canal
Help facilitate our Toddler Boat Trips which run one morning. Carers and their toddlers can come on a visit and enjoy storytelling and music as they embark on one of our boat trips into the caverns or out on the open water.

Our Toddler Boat mornings start with a boat trip leaving at 10am. There is a small charge for each child but carers come free. Depending on the weather the trip will either go into the tunnel to castle mill basin or out on the open water. The trip will last between 20mins and half an hour. Whilst on the boat trip you will be reading a story or two and leading a song or nursery rhyme. When the boat trip has finished families can get a drink in our restaurant, The Gongoozler, where we will have colouring sheets and crayons for the children. You will facilitate the colouring till about 11.30 when we will pack up and officially finish (although families are free to stay and chat for as long as they like).
