about us…

We are a Christian Parent and Toddler Group, which is self-supporting and is run by our volunteer Host Team at St Cedd's parish church. Our aim is to provide a caring and loving environment for your child to learn about God, whilst helping to develop their skills in listening, learning, sharing and kindness to others.

When you join us, you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere - one where your children can play safely and you can chat with other parents. At St Cedd's we love our tea and coffee and it’s freely available throughout the session. We have toys appropriate for your child’s age along with multi-sensory activities, such as playdough, craft work, songs and music.

thursday’s 10.00am – 11.30am (school term times).

the cost is only £2.00 per child

who’s it for…

• singing

we love it when you encourage and support your child/children during the story and singing, taking time to sit with them on mats and cushions. this helps aid everyone’s concentration while listening. our craft times are great as it provides time for you and your child to work together in our fun activities.
