Parent Toddler Group


The Parent and Toddler group at The Halifax YMCA is an excellent way of meeting parents and carers of young children in the local area. They run to benefit children aged under 5 years (pre-school) and are attended by mums and dads, grandparents, childminders or nannies, and their children.


One of the key aims of the Parent and Toddler Groups is to provide a warm and friendly environment for local families to come and make friends. Caring for babies and young children can be both exhausting and isolating and toddler group is an excellent way of enabling parents and carers to establish their own informal 'support networks'.


Opening Monday and Friday mornings from 9:30am till 12noon

Admission £2 one adult & one child

includes a hot drink for adults and cold drink and snack for your child


Knit and Natter Group


The knit and natter group use their skills to create garments and toys that can be given to people in need. Imagine the joy a knitted garment can give to an adult or child alike who have had to leave everything behind and flee for their lives.

Mid morning drinks are available and sometimes they go for a pub lunch.

If you prefer to work from home but still want to help then that's fine!
