Yes, that′s right. A playgroup for dads and toddlers! 

‘We′re just groups of normal blokes, who also happen to be dads looking after their children during the week.

Some of us are homedads full time. Some have part time employment, and do the childcare on the other days. Some even work full time but with shift patterns that allow them to come to the playgroup with their kids. Room full of toys, games, crafts and play things for all pre school ages.’

Coffee and tea on tap for dads. Bring your own snacks. (nut free please) Great chance for dads and their little ones to get together and socialise.

The toddler group is for all children between 0 and 4 and their ‘grown up helpers’. We meet Friday mornings during term time between 10.00 and 11.30am at the Sports Pavilion, Holly Close.

We aim to deliver a good mix of free play time, themed sessions (i.e. seasonal craft, cooking, and even science!), encouraging social skill development by sitting down to a snack and rounding the session off with a good old sing-song of all the traditional, favourite nursery rhymes and a few more modern adaptations!

The cost is £2.00 per family, which includes all craft materials, cooking ingredients, snack and of course, a cup of tea for Mum!

Flamingos -

Time: 10-11 First Friday of the month.

Cost: £TBC

CLOSED DUE TO COVID

This group is specifically for children with allergies. There will be no food or drink at this group. 

It must be so scary to be mum to a child with severe allergies, at every group there are hidden dangers, oranges, cheese, nuts and milk to name but a few. Snack time can be messy, food on the floor and on hands and toys.  
So if this is you and your child, here is a group where the worry has been taken away. 

There are new toys and a very clean environment. There will be guest speakers from the Devon Allergy Clinic to answer any questions. 

Please contact the group before heading out.
