Little Oaks Parent & Toddler @ Gloucester Salvation Army

Little Oaks is for pre-school children only and their parents/carers. It is Christian-based and part of The Salvation Army church programme here in Gloucester. The group seeks to provide a community service that benefits both the children and their parents/carers by offering friendship, support and educational play. During the course of the group there will be free play, snack time and singing/story time.

The group is run during the school term time on Tuesdays from 10–11.30am and breaks for school holidays. The cost of attending Little Oaks is just £1 per family.

Good Practice

All our helpers are volunteers who have had Criminal Record checks and have also undergone The Salvation Army’s child protection training — Safe and Sound. All group members are asked to follow a few simple points which help to ensure the enjoyment and well-being of all.


At the same time as Little Oaks an NCT Bumps and Babies group runs in the adjacent room, allowing us to jointly support growing families. Find out more at
