As a mum myself, I know some great places, groups, activities and meet-up groups to go to with a baby or toddler.
A ludothèque is basically like a library, only for games rather than books. You can go there with your baby or toddler and use all the games on site. Of course, you can also borrow the games and take them home. The cost depends on the ludothèque, for more information click here.
Lieux d’accueil enfants-parents
These are public places where you can go with your baby or toddler. There are always two employees working, who are very friendly and with whom you can exchange. It’s also a great way to meet other mums and new friends for the little ones. It is free and there is no need to register. They also offer a “eveil musical” once or twice per month.
A list of all the places can be found here.
Bibliothèque Duranti is located in the city centre and offers an “écoute musical” on Wednesday and Saturday at 10.30am and storytelling on Wednesdays at 10.30am. All sessions are suitable for children from age 0-3.
Tiny Music Makers
They offer a variety of music classes in Toulouse, Blagnac and Colomiers for 0-5 year olds. All information can be found here.
GROUPS / CLASSES
I can highly recommend Ellen and her great classes. Every Tuesday afternoon (2.00-3.30pm) there is a Yoga class for mums with their babies. Especially in the beginning, when my son was really small and I was very unexperienced, the classes really helped me. It is a great way to relax but also exchange with other moms. More info here.
Les Bébés Bohèmes
A great association which focuses on baby wearing and offers really great dancing classes with your baby in front of you in a wrap. It is perfect to get active after giving birth. More infos here.
Aude offers great ateliers (workshops) for small explorers (from 9 months to 4 years). Every atelier has a different theme and stimulates all senses of the little ones. There is music, movement and a lot of nice things to explore. You can find the themes and dates of the ateliers here.
Tots & Co Toulouse
This is an association that provides activities and events for small children and their parents. All activities are in English. More information here.
