These groups provide places where parents or carers can take 0 - 5 year olds to enjoy play activities and meet others. Parents or carers must stay with the children. The groups can also offer support and advice for parents.
Like playgroups, parent/carer and toddler groups are where children start meeting and interacting with other children apart from their own brothers and sisters. Children can make friends at parent/carer and toddler groups, which prepares them for nursery at a later stage.
Groups that take place at Children's Centres will sometimes be limited to only those families who live in the Children's Centre catchment area. So please contact the centre directly, using the contact details on their page, to check that it is running and that you can attend.
