Portswood Pod is our popular babies & toddler group which runs during term time every Tuesday between 10 - 11.30am.
Everyone is welcome! We have mums, dads, grandparents, childminders, and foster carers - those of faith and those of none. Our aim is that you will be welcomed as one of our family, not just by the caring team but also by other people who come along and that you will feel at home with us.
It's a good place to be if you are a first-time parent and you want to get to know some people in the area.
There are lots of toys to play with and things to do. For toddlers, there is an area for messy play, puzzles and craft as well as outside space that is open all weathers and scooters and bikes. There is a singing time at the end of our time together which is very interactive with lots of actions.
Free tea and coffee is served, with drink and snacks for the toddlers.
We meet every Tuesday morning in term time, and the cost is £1.50 per adult per week or £1.20 per week if you pay for a half term at a time.
WE ARE CURRENTLY ABLE TO WELCOME NEWCOMERS STRAIGHT AWAY – PLEASE USE THE “CONTACT US” LINK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.
