Toddler Group

We are a friendly and welcoming Baby & Toddler group who meet in the Tamberlin Room adjacent to St John the Evangelist Church, Shirley, (access via Spring Park Road).

We welcome babies and toddlers from birth to pre-school age with their parents or carers.
Babies are well provided for with soft mats, baby friendly and sensory toys.
There are a wide variety of toddlers’ toys & activities to encourage creative and imaginary play and each week a different craft activity is on offer, often with a seasonal theme.
The session ends with nursery rhymes, story or parachute game.

Meets weekly, every Friday between 10.00am and 11.30am and is open to parents (and grandparents) of children regardless of whether they are members of our congregation.
