Child Reading in the Grass


Through our Early Years Project we offer a number of groups for parents and their children. These groups give parents the chance to:

  • Meet in a safe and uncritical place

  • Be with others who are also facing the challenges of being a parent

  • Share their experiences with professionals who may be able to help share the load and offer new ideas

  • Be in a place where parents and babies can play together, spend time together and talk about how it is for them where they won’t be judged, but supported and encouraged

  • Have access to a space where they can spend time with their baby in a comfortable environment

  • Understand and develop the skills to hear what their baby is telling their parents

  • Meet new people, discuss topics that are relevant to them and have a cup of tea!

Buggy walk and talk

A chance to meet other parents of babies and toddlers out of doors for a walk, talk and coffee, with the support of one of our therapy team. An opportunity to bring questions or worries about your baby or yourself to a friendly parent/baby specialist in a relaxed and friendly environment.

The Walk and Talk takes place every Monday morning during term time, at 10.00, meeting by the Darwin’s Evolution in the Quarry park in Shrewsbury. 

For further details, contact Katie Illes: or just turn up on the day- we will be there, rain or shine and look forward to seeing you!

Therapeutic Sessions 

The groups are for parents and carers of babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. They are a chance to discuss concerns about your child’s emotions and behaviour, or your relationship with your child, with our infant well-being specialists. You might want to talk about concerns you or your child has about the transition from pre-school to primary school. They are also a chance to chat with other parents. 

The sessions take place every Monday morning in the Quarry Park at 10-3 during term time, in Shrewsbury and in Pontesbury at The Pavillion from 10-12.

We will be in the tent come rain or shine, and look forward to seeing you!
