Parent & Toddler Group

What is a parent and toddler group?

Barnardos parent and toddler groups are weekly groups for parents and their children between the ages of birth and 5 years. Each parent and toddler group is:

  • child-centred
  • provides play experiences for children in line with their age and stage of development
  • promotes positive parent-child interactions
  • provides parents with information on how to support their child’s development

Each group takes place in a safe, stimulating and child-friendly environment.
