Run by local parents, we offer support, information and friendship to new parents and parents-to-be across Caterham and Oxted
Whether you're expecting a baby or you already have a family with young children, Caterham & Oxted NCT has a lot to offer you.

Chatter is our branch magazine now available online and is published three times a year. Latest edition can be found here.
In our Spring 2019 edition we are looking at support - from how friends and family can support you with a new baby, to finding the best underwear to support you! We have suggestions on how to keep the little ones entertained throughout the Easter break, including days out and activities to do at home. There are recipes to try with your children or alternative gifts to Easter eggs if you want to avoid a sugar rush! As always we bring you details of local activities and NCT branch groups and events.
Chatter is written and edited entirely by volunteers - if you would like to contribute with articles, or have ideas for themes, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We launched our 'Let's Talk About' evening on 14th March, where parents had the chance to come along and share their experiences of feeding young babies. We covered breast, formula, expressing, combination and tube feeding. Check this page for details of future events.
Our volunteers put together a list of sources for support and information which they have found useful.
Volunteers, parents and expectant parents just like you, run our branch. You don’t need to take on huge tasks, just commit whatever time you can. It is a great way to learn new skills, make new friends, and represent the NCT. We are currently look for volunteers for a variety of roles
What we do
Antenatal Classes can be booked in various locations across the borough, giving you the chance to make friends who are expecting babies around the same time as you, as well a chance to learn about what choices you have in planning your birth and life with your new baby or babies.
Nearly New Sales are held in Caterham or Oxted three times a year. They are a great place to shop for you and your baby, stock up on maternity wear, baby and children's clothes, toys, books and games as well as equipment such as prams, cots and baby baths.
