Terrace Tots

We know that family life can be full of highs and lows, good days and bad days. Our aim is to offer a friendly parent and baby group where you can have a break from your daily life and chill out. Our friendly and supportive staff are here to listen, provide support and help you find information. The Café is located 2 minutes from the Grassmarket, in the Vennel in the Old Town of Edinburgh. The cafe can be accessed via  the Lauriston end of the Vennel or by  the Grassmarket. Please note  universal access is by the Lauriston side of the Vennel where there is drop off point with single yellow lines. The entrance via The Grassmarket has a numbers of steps  making it unsuitable those with mobility issues or buggies!



Whilst COVID restrictions are in place,  6VT's Terrace Tots meet on Zoom on the 2nd Tuesday of the month and  on the last Tuesday of each month there is a trip out for parents and their children. Parents can access individual support out with these times if they require additional support.


Babies, toddlers & parents under 24 years are welcome as well as young parents expecting a baby.  You will get the chance to meet other young parents and share experiences or try out some new activities for you and your children.
