Parent and Toddler Groups are as the name suggests, parents and their children who meet in a local setting, generally a local community centre, or parish hall, for anything up to a couple of hours once a week. This is a voluntary service, parents mind their own children. These groups offer parents/families the opportunity to meet other adults and for children to get to play with other children. The adults may be parents/guardians, childminders or even grandparents/extended family.
