Tadpoles is our toddler group (for babies to 5 year olds) which meets in the Church on Friday mornings in term-time.


Tadpoles operates on a membership basis so that everyone who is a member knows that they will be able to come on a Friday and there will be a place for them. Due to the popularity of Tadpoles, and the limited space in the hall, there is sometimes a waiting list.

If you are interested in joining Tadpoles, please send an email to  In normal times, we invite people to attend for a taster session (with prior arrangement so we know to expect you). Unfortunately, due to Covid it is not possible to do this at the moment.

Due to government restrictions on numbers at playgroups under Covid, we do currently have a waiting list. We anticipate that there should be spaces available in September (and possibly before depending on conditions in the next stages of the government ‘roadmap’).

Tadpoles under Covid restrictions

Current Covid restrictions mean that Tadpoles looks very different from normal. We are running two sessions on a Friday morning (10.00-10.30 and 11.00-11.30) and can have a maximum of 15 families at each session.

Tadpoles in ‘normal’ times

Tadpoles usually runs from 10-11.30am.

A typical morning runs as follows:

10-10.45 Free play and craft

10.45-11.00 Snack time 

11.00-11.15 Bikes and ride-ons 

11.15-11.30 Singing time 


There is a fee of £5 per term for babies up to 6 months; £15 for one child over 6 months; £20 for two or more children.
