Care for the Family is a national charity which aims to promote strong family life and to help those who face family difficulties. Part of the work that they do is called Playtime and provides support and advice for anyone interested in engaging with young families in a toddler group setting. Toddler groups are a lifeline to the parents, carers and toddlers who come along each week. They are also an extremely accessible ‘first step’ into the church for these families.
