What we do

Toddler Group (POD)

PORTSWOOD POD (TODDLER GROUP)

We are a group for 0-5 year olds and their carers. We have mum's, dad's, grandparent's, childminders and foster carers at our group everyone is welcome those of faith and those of none, including those that are pregnant, if you wish to get to know us before your baby is born. 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.

We meet every Tuesday morning in term time. There are lots of toys to play with and things to do. We have a baby area for those with tiny babies, it's a good place to be if you are a first-time parent and you want to get to know some people. An area for messy play, puzzles and craft as well as outside space that is open all weathers and includes sand, scooters and bikes.

We charge just £1.50 per family and you can come and try the group for the first time for free. This includes a tea or coffee for the grown-ups, water for the children biscuits and fruit. We end with a time of singing together. Once a term we aim to eat together with bacon butties, pancakes or a picnic.

But don't just take it from me here is what some of the people that come think
