Toddler Group

As part of our Psychology Kindergarten we also provide a Toddler Group for 0-3 years old to grow and develop in a safe and friendly environment. Toddlers, parents and carers can socialise with each other and make new friends.

About the toddler group

The Toddler Group is run by Sarah Thorburn, our experienced Kindergarten senior early years practitioner. The group runs Tuesdays and Thursdays mainly during term times, from 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm, in room 3W8 on the third floor of the Cottrell Building.

The sessions are dedicated to children from birth to 3 years old. The costs are £3 per session, per family. The next term starts on Tuesday the 18th of September 2018 and finishes on Thursday the 30th of May 2019. All dates are available on our calendar page.

We currently have spaces available.

There’ll be coffee and tea available for parents, grandparents and carers and a healthy snack for the children. If your child has any allergy, please let us know as soon as possible.

Please note that adults are responsible for their own and their child(s) safety when attending the Toddler Group.

The Toddler Group provides changing mat, wipes, nappy sacks and a few spare nappies in case of emergency. There are facilities for the disposal of wet nappies. Soiled ones must be taken away.

Helping psychology research

When you register your child, you can decide whether you give permission for your child to participate in the research. All research projects are carried out to rigorous health and safety standards, and are passed through our University ethics committee.

Learn more about how children benefit from new research ideas and participate in exciting studies run by University staff and students.

How to join

You can drop in to register your child on any day we are open and then the early years practitioner will ask you to sign a few forms. It would be useful if you emailed us before attending the session to let us know you are coming.


We have negotiated free parking for Toddler Group parents. Upon registration, you will be given a purple card to display on your dash board, which will be valid during the hours of 1.30 pm – 3.30 pm during the sessions. You will  only have to pay for your parking on the first day, after which we’ll issue your card.

You can email us for directions but feel free to give us a call on the day on 01786 466836 if you need help and we’ll direct you to the room.
