• Baby & Toddler Groups

Make New Friends

Baby and Toddler groups are usually voluntary community groups where parents, carers and their toddlers can meet, socialise and play. Meetings are usually weekly, with a small charge for attendance. Adults stay with their children whilst making new friends along the way.

We rely on information from providers and users to keep this timetable and location/contact details up to date.  We advise contacting the organiser in advance of your first visit to check the session is running and that times and venues are correct.   Please let us know if you are aware of any changes so that we can ensure this information is kept up to date.

Play in the Parks run by St Albans City and District Council is free and will run from Monday 3rd – Thursday 13th April 2017.
