Martlesham Heath Baby & Toddler Group

About Us

Martlesham Heath Baby and Toddler Group is a small informal playgroup. Run by mums, we meet every Wednesday and Friday morning, term time, from 9.30 - 11.30 am at the Pavilion in Martlesham Heath, Ipswich.

Originally an informal group started in May 1978 we are a small, friendly, relaxed toddler group meeting twice a week during term time. The group is non profit making and all monies raised are put back into the group to pay for rent, insurance, new equipment and toys, the Christmas party and other fun events. Our group is run on a voluntary basis by a committee solely made up of parents and carers who attend the sessions.

There is no need to book for a session, just come along! It's always lovely to see new people.

We have a wide variety of toys and equipment suitable for babies and preschool age children including colouring/drawing, books, jigsaws, role play, cars and building blocks.

We also hire our toys for children's parties for £10, only available with the hire of the Martlesham Pavilion. Please contact us for more information.




Each session is broken down into free play, followed by singing where the children are encouraged to play musical instruments whilst singing nursery rhymes. After this is snack time where the children are given a drink and biscuit and the grown ups can enjoy a tea/coffee and a biscuit.



During term time:
Wednesday & Friday: 9.30 - 11.30 am
During Summer Holiday:
Casual sessions to be arranged throughout the holiday - check Facebook for updates.



Sessions cost £2.50 for the first child and £1 for each additional child. This includes drinks and snacks for both adult and child.

Age range: 0-4.
