Greek playgroup in London?

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! 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.

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

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

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.

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

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 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.

dear all,

are there any greek mothers in the Richmond, st Margaret's area of Londin who run a playgroup for babies? or maybe mothers who would like to form a playgroup?

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 to all mummies!

We just moved from Athens, Greece to Bath, UK and we'd love to meet other Greek parents/families. We've lived in the UK before, but this is the first time with our little one who is almost 2 years old, and it would be great for her to practice her Greek with other children! However, as I mentioned we currently live in Bath, and this makes things a bit more difficult in terms of distance (as I understand most mummies here live in London) We do plan to visit London often though, and are open to any suggestions (and hopefully invitations smile ) about playgroups, or just a day out in the park. It would be really great to meet other Greek parents, and have a fun day with our little ones running around!!

Are any mums who interested in organising with me a greek playgroup for the children?

valiumredhead Mon 07-Oct-13 14:08:41

Just wanted to add I was brought up learning to respond in the language I was spoken to in . So if mum spoke to me in Greek then I responded in Greek, and if she spoke to me in English then I responded in English.

Sorry, no info about playground but good lucksmile

There is a group on FB called greek moms in England (you need to translate that into Greek) not sure if I'm allowed to put it here.

Hi all. I think that there's a playgroup connected with agia Sofia in bayswater. I know that they run a school as I went there every Saturday!

KensalMama Wed 01-Feb-12 16:55:03

Hi, there. We are two Greek mums who run a Greek playgroup in NW London (Kensal Rise) which meets up every two weeks. Here is the info:

Any questions, please e-mail us on

Thanks! smile

I am also interested in meeting up with other Greek/Greek speaking families. My daughters are 4yrs and 2.5yrs old. I speak Greek to them and though they understand it perfectly well, their English is better. It would be great if they had some other Greek children to play with! I also live in Hackney near Finsbury Park. Kalliroi where abouts are you? It sounds like we might be close. I will also check out the playgroups mentioned in this thread.

Hello Maria,

My daughter is 3years+9months and speaks fluently Greek and English. We moved in London when she was about 1year old. I only speak to her in Greek and translate, whenever necessary to her father. Of course, English is what she hears most but she is equally good at both. I hope that the same will apply for my 5 month old boy. Your son might ''prefer'' English but i am sure that he knows his Greek. Regards from Hackney.

For those who are interested, recently a small greek playgroup was set up in the Kilburn area, every second saturday. It's really nice & cosy (I've been twice) & there's a great cafe right next door for a relaxed lunch after. If any of you are interested, please PM me & I'll send you the details...
