Hi, I have a 2.5 year old DS & would love to set up a playgroup with Greek families (or find an existing one) so that our children can (hopefully) practice greek.

I'm getting a bit worried with my DS because even though DP & I are both greek & we talk to him in Greek, he responds in English only. He does have some Greek words & understands what we say to him in Greek, but only talks in English.

Do you know of any playgroups in North / NW London (or central, even)? Or is anyone interested in trying to set up one?

Hi all, since 2011 there is a regular Greek playgroup in Kensal Rise (north west London) called Milo (Mothers In LOndon). It is a not-for-profit voluntary group and nonetheless well organised and very regular. We run two groups, a drop-on bi-weekly class for babies and toddlers and a monthly pre-paid class with creative activities for older children until about 7 years old. If you are interested, please email us on for more information.

Hi All
I live near Wimbledon and wonder if there are any Greek playgroups we could join? My son is 2 years old. I need to practise my Greek and want him to get used to hearing it in a different environment. There has been mention of groups above in the SW area but not sure if any have been formed since.

I live in Raynes Park and I have a little girl who turns 2 in December. I am also looking for a greek playgroup in the area or for any greek families that would like to meet up in nearby parks, play areas and get the children together. Looking forward to hear back from you!

Hi Ems9
I've not had any luck finding a playgroup. Tried to contact the group but got no reply. Will try again.

I also close by, South Wimbledon. I am Spanish but my husband is Greek and we have a 2 year old daughter. Would love to meet up for playdates if you want... as it seems there is no greek playgoers around here.

Does anyone know of any Greek playgroups running in North London for toddlers?

Roses2, did you try Milo in North London? Details in the thread above?
Ferflux, I'd be happy to meet up.

Hi! I know this is a bit of an old thread but I live in Putney, have 2 toddlers, and my husband is Greek and I am keen on finding a Greek speaking playgroup in southwest London. If anyone knows if one exists now please do let me know! Also would be keen to set up play dates with Greek families. My Greek is so so but my husband speaks fluently.
