Baby and Toddler Groups Open over Summer


art for childrenOne of the things that used to be a problem over the summer holidays was the closure of your regular groups. Six weeks with pre-schoolers without any structure can be difficult to fill. Fortunately in Portsmouth at least, there are plenty of groups which will carry on throughout the holidays – although some of them may be on  a reduced timetable.  I’ve started this blog post as a list and as and when I find any more I shall add to it – so keep checking back. I won’t add the days and times to the blog as the schedules vary so instead I’ve added links to their own sites and you can check directly with them. If you know of a class I haven’t added – drop me a line at

Jiggy Wrigglers – All Portsmouth Groups  (except for the last two weeks in August)Portchester, Rowner, Lee on the Solent, Stubbington (check their facebook page for up-dates).
