2021 baby/toddler playgroups and classes in Sheffield

updated February 24th. baby/toddler playgroups and classes in Sheffield

COVID UPDATE: Due to the pandemic, playgroups and classes have been cancelled with little to no notice of when they will be returning. A recent update from the government gave hope for outdoor groups to return in a few months followed by indoor groups in April. It is going to be a rocky and unpredictable few months ahead and whilst I will try my best to keep this post up to date, please be aware things may change at the last minute and so I highly recommend that you double check.

Please be aware I do my absolute best to keep these lists updated. But, the only reliable source I have is those who run the groups/classes themselves, their websites and people who attend them (or myself)!. If you know a group is no longer running or has changed location/time PLEASE let me know either by commenting or emailing me at naomi@tripswithatot.com as soon as you know.

Alternatively you can post in our community group which has over 3k sheffield local families in it asking for more information on the group/class. (No business promotions/ads allowed!)

Thank you!
