Baby groups and toddler groups are a great, inexpensive way for your child to mix with others and for you to meet other parents. A playgroup offers short daily sessions of care and learning through play for 2-5 year olds. Please call in advance before going as many groups have waiting lists and many are term-time only

Rhymetime and Storytime sessions are held in libraries throughout Trafford. Rhymetime is aimed at younger children whilst Storytime is aimed at children with more developed verbal understanding. However, both can be enjoyed by any pre-school age child.
