Baby 500x500

One of the things that we often get asked about is groups that are just for babies, so we thought we’d put together a list of the baby groups that take place in the area. These groups can be good for getting your baby socialising and for meeting other parents – great if you’re a new parent, new in the area or are looking to make friends with others who have similar aged little ones. If you have older toddlers or pre-schoolers then have a look at our playgroup directory. You may also be interested in our events calendar which has handy day to day listings of groups & events in the area. If you’re looking for a class or activity to take your baby to then have a look at our Baby, Toddler & pre-school activity class guide.

If you know of any groups that we’ve missed off this list please get in touch and we’ll add them.

Most of these groups are organised by the West Berkshire Family Wellbeing Hubs, for more information on the Hubs and details of their timetables, you can visit the West Berkshire Council website here. You can visit the Hungerford & Area Family Centre website here.

We advise checking that all details are correct and up to date before going along to a group that is listed below.
