Who We Are

Run by Toddler Groups for Toddler Groups

The London Network of Parent and Toddler Groups is committed to serving parent and toddler groups and those who belong to them by encouraging and equipping them for the important task of supporting families.

 ’And let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds’: Hebrews 10:24 (NIVUK) 

The London Network of Parent and Toddler Groups is led by a small steering group made up of toddler group leaders and church representatives.
The network is a project of Daniel’s Den (charity number 1147172).

We exist to raise the profile of the value of toddler groups in our society and the role they play in helping families with under-fives to thrive.

We are a collective voice, bringing issues faced by toddler groups to the attention of churches and other relevant bodies.

We support toddler groups in facilitating local network meetings in their boroughs for mutual encouragement, exchanges of ideas and prayer.
Who We Are

What We Do

We organise an annual Rhythms of Grace Conference, run by and for toddler group leaders.
A prayer marathon takes place every June when we pray for each borough in turn throughout the month, starting with a launch event on 1st June and ending on 2nd July.

Regular network meetings are held on zoom where we share information, hear Good News stories, pray for and encourage one another. This provides opportunity for people to connect with one another and hear more about the ministry of toddler groups across London.

Our Events

Prayer Marathon

Prayer Marathon

1st June – 2nd July is the prayer marathon from parent and toddler groups organised by the network. Throughout this period every London borough is prayed for in alphabetical order, from Barking & Dagenham to Westminster. Click here for the London Prayer Marathon brochure for 2024 – please feel to share with your team and church.

We hope to raise the profile of toddler groups through this event and encourage toddler group leaders to get together to pray and celebrate and to share their ministry with their church family.

The 100 day countdown takes place on 22nd February each year – watch this space!

Zoom network meetings and local network meetings

We meet every term online – an opportunity to share our joys and challenges, hear news and pray for one another.

Some local meetings take place in boroughs and often meet at toddler groups venues. These smaller groups can focus on their own community and consider joined up working if and when appropriate.
