Parent and Toddler groups

A group for parents and carers with children under school age: most of the children are below the age of 3 years. Parents and carers remain with, and have responsibility for, their children during the session. There is an opportunity for a range of play activities and to meet together and socialise. Most churches & community centres have parent & toddler groups.
