Parent and toddler groups

Where can I take my pre-school child or children for activities and socialisation?

There are several parent and toddler groups in Hampshire that provide a mixture of activities and run on different days and times in the week.

Lots of groups are run by local Children's Centres.  Find your local centre.

Also details of some groups are listed on the Hampshire Family Information Directory.
