North Devon Little Stars Toddler Group

Every Tuesday   10am – 11.30am


Join us for our Little Stars Toddler Group every Tuesday in Barnstaple from 10am to 11.30M

These sessions provide lots of fun things for you to do with your child/children to help build attachment.  Each week consists of play and activities in a purpose built room that has numerous toys, a climbing frame, dressing up, a baby area, kitchen area and a shop.  Each week there is craft, painting and play dough.

Tea and coffee is available for parents and the last ¼ of an hour is for storytelling and singing when the children get a snack and a drink.  As our facility on a Tuesday is in a church there is sometimes a bible story that brings out a virtue such as kindness or friendship or we will use a story from a book especially designed for adopted children.

The cost is £1.50 for one child and £2.00 for two or more.

The helpers at this group have all adopted and therefore understand developmental trauma and the support that is needed.  It is a secure and confidential group enabling all parents to know that their child/children are safe.

If you are interested in either groups please call Gill Coram on 01271 612004 or email  for an application form, or if you have any questions.
