May 10, 2023

The Barnardo’s Big Toddle is an annual fun fund-raising event.

This safari-themed sponsored walk is aimed at children under five, although all ages and abilities can take part. Your toddlers can get support from brave older siblings, and the littlest cubs can join in the fun from their pushchairs, or as we like to call them, their solo safari jeeps!

Big Toddle Week 2023 is between 12th and 18th June. 

You can organise a Toddle Together as a group from a family hub, a nursery, school or playgroup, or do a turtle-y amazing Home Safari with family or friends.

Your Big Toddle can be indoors or out, at your school or nursery grounds, or somewhere full of natural sights and sounds like a garden, park or woods. A half a mile walk is normally, just right.

Many of the Essex Family Hubs will be sharing information about how you may be able to participate during your Stay Hi group or how you can download fabulous free resources to make your own Big Toddle A ROARING SUCCESS!
