Playgroups are a good opportunity to get out of the house and meet other mums. There are playgroups on throughout the week in Sutton. Here is our pick of the best groups on offer

Playgroups are a great way to meet other mums in Sutton with children of a similar age. Mums that you meet at playgroups can form a vital support network as your kids grow up and start attending local schools together. Playgroups are ideal places for your kids to socialize.

Most groups have a wide selection of age-appropriate toys and messy play activities. Free-play sessions are followed by singing and rhymes.  Importantly, there’s usually a cup of tea on offer too!

Good Fathers
Hope Church Sutton

Hope Church Sutton has launched a new Saturday play group for dads and pre-school tots.
The play group meets every first Saturday of each month 9-10:30 am in Robin Hood Junior School, Thorncroft rd, Sutton. The cost is £2 per dad and includes a light breakfast and coffee. This is a very good opportunity to help mums get some rest and time for them selves, or some extra sleep. This may be particularly relevant in view of the recent closure of a similar dads' group at Manor Park Children Centre. Our next meeting of our dads' play group will be on 4th February, this Saturday, and then on 4th March, 9am. Then on, it will be held every first Saturday of each month.
