NEW! 5-10 years support group. 

Parent & Toddler/Baby Group

Are you a parent/carer of a child (Pre School) who has Down’s Syndrome?

We are a group of families (from West of Scotland) who meet on a monthly basis (on Sundays) and have an informal chat over tea and coffee. The children have juice and biscuits and there are plenty of toys for them to play with. We have Song Time at the group and either a Jo Jingles or Sing and Sign leader comes along with instruments and music.

We meet at Albertslund Hall, Westacres Road, Newton Mearns from 3pm until 5pm on the following dates:

2008 Sunday:

13 January
10 February
9 March
13 April
11 May
8 June
13 July
10 August
7 September
5 October
9 November
7 December

If you are interested, please come along on any of these dates. Admission is free and there is no need to join. You can come along on as many or as few Sundays as you like. Mums/Dads/brothers/sisters/grandparents etc are all welcome. There are many dads and grandparents who come along on a regular basis, so please feel free to bring the entire family if you wish.

If you would like further information please contact:
