We are a pre-school toddler group open to all children from birth to 5 years & their carers (parents, grandparents & child minders all very welcome). There is a small charge of £2.50 per family per session which includes a snack for the children, tea/coffee for adults, cost of hall rental & contribution to the upkeep of toys.

The group is a great way for children & the adults who care for them to socialise, build friendships & have lots of fun!

Abernethy Baby and Toddler Group has been running in the village for more than 40 years. The group is run by volunteers and provides a place for mums, dads, grandparents and carers to take their little ones from birth to 5 years for a bit of fun and socialising.

There are lots of different toys and activities available for the children to play with, it's an ideal way for them to meet and make friends with other children in the village. A healthy snack is provided and high chairs are also available for the younger children, it's lovely to see the little ones sitting around the table, sharing food and chatting to each other.

Tea, coffee (and often some home baking) are there for the adults to enjoy, as well as a good old chat. It's a great way to catch up with friends and get to know other people in the village. The group is friendly and welcoming and we would love to see some new faces and welcome new members.

The group runs on Tuesday and Thursday mornings in Williamson Hall between 9.30am and 11.30am. The cost each session is £2.50 per family. All proceeds go towards the hire of the hall and renewing toys and equipment.

If you are interested in coming along you can contact us through our Facebook page or call Liz on 01738 851001. Or please feel free to drop in.

Hope to see you there!
