Our Toddlers stay-and-play group for ages 0-4 runs on Tuesdays during term time.

Toddlers is a stay-and-play group for 0-4 year olds and their parents/carers. It runs during term time on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 until 11:15am. Anyone can come along (no need to sign up or book) and entry is free. We gratefully accept donations to cover the cost of refreshments and craft materials. We offer real coffee, tea, homemade cake and a range of snacks and drinks for little ones.

Toddlers is run by volunteers who are part of Hockliffe Street Baptist Church. We run the group because we want to serve our community in Leighton Buzzard and show God’s love to everyone who comes along.

Toddlers is set up like a pre-school or nursery setting, with different areas for messy play and craft, role play, ‘small world’ (trains, farm, dolls house etc), activities that focus on fine motor skills and others to develop gross motor skills. There is a huge range of toys and the set up is different every week. There’s always a craft linked to the day’s Bible story. For the last 20 minutes of the morning, we enjoy songs, play instruments, hear a Bible story and talk to Jesus in prayer.

This is a friendly group where our volunteers work hard to make sure everyone gets a warm welcome. We love chatting to new people and getting to know them. Whether you’re loving life with your toddler grandchildren, struggling alone with a newborn, or enjoying some special 1 to 1 time with your pre-schooler on your day off, we hope you’ll come and try Toddlers!
