Hitchin Open House is a FREE, afternoon group for pre-school toddlers (walkers to 4 years). All are welcome (including baby siblings) at Hitchin Youth Centre. There is no need to book, just turn up!

The group, hosted by Natalya and Chrys, is a weekly opportunity for toddlers and pre-schoolers to play with different toys and for parents or carers to get together for a chat. It also runs during the school holidays.

There is a car park at the youth centre, as well as a warm and friendly welcome. Just enter the front of the building and go through the first door on the left. (Please only enter the Youth Rooms once our NCT host/keyholder is present. The Youth Trust has experienced some problems with doors being left unlocked. Your co-operation means that we can continue to use this great venue free of charge!)

Each session begins with a sing-a-long with musical instruments, followed by free play and ending with a story. In good weather, the children can play in the garden at the youth centre. Parents or carers are welcome to bring a snack and drink for their child. The snack and story time is a popular feature each week!

Please take home any dirty nappies as the venue is not able to dispose of nappy waste.

There is no entry fee but small donations are gratefully accepted to help support other local NCT services and events. You don't have to be an NCT member so bring your friends. Come and give it a try!
