Welcome to the Teesside branch, for parents in Stockton-on-Tees, Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland. Supporting you through pregnancy and beyond.


Bumps and Babies is our weekly social morning for expectant parents and those with babies who cannot walk yet It is a drop in group so you can attend as often as you wish and thee is no need to be an NCT member: soft play, friendly chat and refreshments...simply that.
No structure, no speakers, no expectations that you will relate your birth experience to the rest of the group; simply a good opportunity to step off the world for a few hours, chat and have a drink made for you. So forget the housework, that can wait; come along for some social interaction without having to host people at home.
This is a group for everybody however you choose to feed your offspring. Microwave oven and kettle available for formula feeders, mutual support for breastfeeders; all welcome! Suggested donation £1 per week to cover room hire costs.

Every Wednesday 10am - 12pm St Paul's Church, Bishopton Road, Stockton TS18 4PE

Togglers playgroup is held at The Avenue Methodist Church, Linthorpe, Middlesbrough, TS5 6PA from 10am to 12pm. For children 0-3 yrs with toys, books, puzzles, refreshment. £1 donation, open to all not just NCT members.
