We run two regular groups:, Bumps and Babes and Little Monkeys.

Bumps and Babies

Bumps and Babes is an informal group open to all expectant mums and parents of children under 12 months. It's a chance to meet new people in a similar situation to your own, have a chat, a drink and often a much needed chocolate biscuit!

The group runs every Friday morning (10-11.30am) at Friends Meeting House, The Ginnel (off Newmarket Street), Skipton. For more details contact Nat at skiptonanddistrict@nct.org.uk or visit www.facebook.com/groups/NCTskiptonanddistrict

Little Monkeys - Baby and Toddler Group

Little Monkeys is our very popular baby and toddler group for parents (both mums and dads), grandparents and other carers.

Come and join us - this is a volunteer-run friendly group running every Thursday (term-time only) 9.30-11.am at St Andrew's Church, Newmarket Street, Skipton.

Entry: £2.50 per family for over 1 years or with more than one child.

£1.50 for under ones.  Including refreshments.

You can just turn up (anytime from 9.30-1100 am) - but if you are the shy type or not knowing any people is holding you back - please drop us an email and we’ll make sure we greet you and show you around as soon as you walk in (well, we MIGHT let you park the pram first and take your coat off...)!

Want to know more about the group? It:

- can help you socialise and get out of the house! make friends, have a cuppa and a good chat!

- gives children the opportunity to play with other babies/children and enjoy the space and the fantastic toys

- offers arts and crafts - lovingly organised by the team each week, with Singing towards the end of the session.

- gives you lots of information about our NCT branch, our events but also about other events and things going on that you might find interesting as a parent - plus meet our hard-working volunteers, learn about volunteering with us and have a say!
