Please check directly with the group before attending, as dates and times may change. Most playgroups have a Facebook page or group for news.

Also please be aware most groups open during term-time only and will require a small donation.


Baby and toddler groups in Poole and surrounding areas, including Parkstone, Broadstone, Branksome, Canford Heath, Upton and Swanage amongst other areas.



A parent and toddler group can be a complete lifesaver for new mums. This is why we’ve produced a comprehensive guide to all playgroups in Poole and surrounding areas.

If you’d like to more about how these groups work and what to expect, you can read all about it on our blog.

Please note, if you can’t find a playgroup near you, please check our Weekly Classes & Groups (0-5), as some have been listed there for each day of the week. The local Libraries also run groups for babies and toddlers. See here.
