Worried about feeling like a wallflower at the local mother and toddler playgroup?

Tired of having to explain why you're caring for your child? Come to Dads and Littluns playgroups in London and Exeter - where you can be proud of being a dad and a bloke, where the conversation flows as easily as the coffee and where there's more toys than noise!

What? A playgroup for dads?

Yes, that′s right. A playgroup for dads and toddlers. We meet on Monday and Friday mornings in Wimbledon, just around the corner from Wimbledon Park tube. We also meet on Friday mornings at our playgroup in Brockwell Park, South London and further afield in Exeter there is a Thursday mornings group.

The playgroups are open most of the year, even during school holidays, because we find that′s actually when you need entertainment for your kids the most.

So, what kind of men go?

We′re just groups of normal blokes, who also happen to be dads looking after their children during the week. Some of us are homedads full time. Some have part time employment, and do the childcare on the other days. Some even work full time but with shift patterns that allow them to come to the playgroup with their kids.

And, although it′s mostly fathers that come to the playgroups, mums are also welcome.

The first visit is absolutely free and there′s no need to book.
