TootingBaby was created by Jo in 2010 after desperately leafing through six different leaflets whilst trying to find a “sodding nursery rhyme session”! Since then Tooting Baby has been run by Ellen and Rebecca before the baton was passed to local mums and volunteers, Priya and Issy.
Priya and Issy have lived in Tooting for over ten years. They became involved in Tooting Baby in 2018, and now juggle the website with family life and work.
To meet other local parents, join the private Tooting Parents Network group on Facebook. The group is used by parents to post reviews of playgroups and cafes, share information about all sorts of events, and ask questions about all sorts of parenting issues. Parents also use the site to ask for recommendations of local tradespeople – so much so that we have been able to collate a list of tried and trusted local people covering everything from roofing to pedicures!
And in addition to the core group, we have set up Tooting Parents Buying/Selling as a discrete site for trading goods and services. You can often find great child-related bargains from local parents looking to de-clutter as their children grow up.
