At St Mary’s, we run two different types of groups for toddlers and their parents. We have a Bumps & Babies group that meets on a Thursday for new and expectant mums and their bubs, and our Toddler Groups meet on Thursdays and Fridays during school term.

Toddlers Group

The children have a great space to play, and parents/carers have a chance to drink coffee and chat to each other. We currently run two toddler group sessions: Mondays 10-11.30am and Wednesdays 9.30-11am during term time on the lower floor of the church (postcode W1H 1PQ).

A typical session consists of free play (& coffee) for an hour, followed by snacks and drinks, and then song time. The cost is £25 per term, or you can pay £3 per session if you join the group in the middle of a term.

Our toddler group is popular and, due to a limit on how many children we can accommodate at each session, we have a waiting list when necessary. At the moment, however, there is no waiting list so you can join straight away. To find out more, please email

Bumps & Babies

The Centre runs a session focusing on expectant mums and parents/carers with babies 0-12 months on Wednesday mornings from 11-12.30pm.
Come and relax on comfy sofas, meet other parents/carers and have a coffee, while your babies kick around and have some fun.

In some sessions there will be a chance to enjoy a few taster sessions for courses run in the area, such as sing and sign, baby massage, baby music and a sensory class.

To join the group please email Kate or come for a taster session.

The cost is £25 (£40 for two siblings) a term or £3 (£5 for two) a session.

The Centre offers early support for key relationships.

Our significant relationships shape the way we view ourselves and others. At The Centre we use attachment based approaches such as Circle of Security Parenting© and Hold me Tight© groups to support these vital connections.
