About Martha's Toddler Groups


Our Toddler Groups are run by members of Golders Green Parish Church for the residents of the local community living in and around Golders Green. 

The groups are for children aged 0-4 and the adults who look after them. We aim to provide a place where both you and your children can make friends, have fun and relax. 

We are open on Mondays and Tuesdays between 9.30am and 11.30am, during school term time. There is a small charge of £3 per child for each session.

Our activities each week include: lots of toys to play with, a craft activity, free tea, coffee and biscuits for adults, fruit and a drink for the children, singing and lots of other fun!

Once a month, at the end of the normal sessions, we have Toddler Praise. We all gather for a short Christian talk, singing, fun and a special take home gift for the children.

For more information about the groups please do come in and meet us or contact:

What some of our members say about Martha's Toddler Groups:

"It is an amazing gathering! People from all ports and paths gather around to play and share. It is really rewarding to see our kids playing and making friends with local people. This group has bought us really good experiences and love. It is a great place to be. By the way my kids cannot wait to come each week.”

“Amazing group. Me and the little one have so much fun. The best group I have ever been to.”

“The group is wonderful. We come every week. My boy loves the creative table ad all the toys which are great for every age. The staff are very kind and helpful we really enjoy belonging here.”

“Amazing group! We really enjoying it! Thank you”

“One of the best Toddler Groups I have every attended. Friendly, genuinely, caring staff and parents. Fabulous dynamic for kids and plenty of toys. Brilliant value for money and fab café.”

“Amazing playgroup. Our second time here, we came for the first time last week and we absolutely loved it. We will be coming here weekly. Staff are so welcoming and kind. Set up is amazing, lovely food etc. Just perfect!”

Martha’s Toddler Group is a safe environment for both children and adults. Toys and activities are planned properly for the age group and challenge children’s achievements. Children are able to meet and socialise with each other. Adults the same. Finally, it is a really fun place where children can entertain themselves.”

“Best Play Group in the area such a range of things for the kids to do and the food is always amazing. And it’s crazy that you only charge £3 which show that you are in it for the families and not to make a profit. Thanks”

“Martha’s Toddler Groups are amazing. The kids have lots of things to explore with a lot of autonomy, very safe place.”

“Fun, amazing, educational to kids, relaxing atmosphere.”

“Nice and big space, lots of toys, friendly people, lots of things to do for the children, delicious pastries and variety.”

“It’s a great place with a good organisation, lots of toys. There is lots of things to do for children and I meet friendly people.”

“I like this group because it is the best place for children, there is so much to do and I love the craft table.”

“I cannot say enough good things about the toddler group at GGPC as a hub of the community. I have been attending the group for about 2 years and have found the support invaluable. London can be such a lonely place as a single mum with a young family. My daughter can socialise while I meet with good people and have a small break away from the confines of home. Thank you so much and please continue helping mums in the area like me.”

“Friendly people, clean and spacious place, free drink and food, fun stories and songs. All my kids like it here.”

“First I would like to say a big thank you for everything that you are doing here. Since we are coming here we make lots of new friends, find a lot of support (all kind) and we really enjoy every week! Hope this will carry on for a long time (the group) and I always recommend it for others every time I have the chance! Thank you to everyone involved.”

“This group has been an absolute lifesaver for me and my girls. A fun safe place for mums to relax and to make friends and find support. The kids have fun too!”

“Martha’s playgroup has been a lifeline for me. I started coming a year ago when getting separated. Sally and her team made me feel so welcome at a time when I felt extremely alone. I cannot praise them highly enough for what they have done for me and my family. A lifeline in the community.”

“I find Martha’s groups really amazing. Kids love it, with singing, arts and crafts, and also the mums and nanny’s have fun too.”

“The staff are very friendly, there are plenty and all kinds of toys for every children; also nice collection of books too. We love coming to Martha’s and make lots of friends here.”

“We love coming to Martha’s Toddler Groups. It’s an opportunity to meet the parents and children in the area. There a so many different toys and a number of exciting activities that change each week to keep the little ones busy and entertained. It’s also a place to help develop their social skills, gross and fine motor abilities. The staff are lovely and always friendly. In the holidays there are sometimes alternative activities which is refreshing.”

“Martha’s Toddler Group provides a safe, interactive and positive social setting for myself and my 2 children. We always look forward to coming every Tuesday and wished it was on most days. Sally and the team are phenomenal and deserve kudos for the work they put in. The are benefitting us parents in more ways than they can imagine and for that we are grateful.”
