Toddlers’ Story

Summer 2008 – end of 1st year

This September, St. Mary’s Church Baby & Toddler Group is celebrating its 10th birthday. We first met on Tuesday

afternoons in 2007 before moving to Thursday mornings in autumn 2012 and since then have enjoyed getting to know the many families who have joined us from Riddlesden and the wider area.


During our weekly sessions we have had fun not only playing with toys but painting hundreds of pictures, planting dozens of sunflowers and making countless craft items. Those who were part of the group on Tuesdays will also remember the lively and popular singing sessions led by Diana which were an enjoyable way to end the afternoon.

We have taken part in many church projects including The Big Picture, the Posada, The Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations and most recently the Advent concert in 2016. We’ve organized Mums’ nights out, and Father Christmas has always been a special visitor at our annual   Christmas party.

During the last 10 years the group has celebrated births, seen friendships made and given us many happy memories. We would love to hear from anyone who has been part of the group and would welcome anyone new who would like to join us – just come along to one of our sessions.

Finally, a big thank you to all our families past and present – we have loved having you with us!

  1. Hello, my daughter is 5 in July and is desperate to join the rainbows. Please could you let me know if she could come for a taster session? Thanks

    • Hello Tori, I have passed your details on to Julie who is the Rainbow’s leader, and she should be contacting you shortly.
      Best wishes

  2. Hello

    I have recently moved to Riddlesden and wondered if there was a baby group (under 1’s)which I could attend with my little boy.

    Thank you
