Tots and Teapots is a baby cafe! A space for parents/carers of babies and young children to meet for a coffee easily in comfort.

by Lucy Keen in Ashford, England, United Kingdom

Tots and Teapots will be a café with a difference.  Situated in South East Kent (location to be confirmed when premises are found!), it will cater to parents and carers of young children and babies, offering them a ‘proper’ adult café – cosy, trendy, a pleasant place to meet that serves great coffee, tea, soft drinks and light bites – but also offering a lovely range of (clean) soft play equipment, toys, books and drinks and snacks suitable for young children and babies

 What’s really special about Tots and Teapots is the meeting space.  This is a space that can be hired for use by toddler and baby groups ; it can also be used by those parents or carers who have decided to set up in direct selling businesses to give their earnings a boost – Avon parties, Usborne parties, Body Shop at Home and so on.  It can also be used by the wider community for anything from book clubs to folk clubs – whatever it may be needed for! 

Tots and Teapots will also aim to include, among other things: a swap shop rail for baby, toddler and maternity clothes; a weekly toddler hairdressing session; events such as information evenings for expectant parents; breastfeeding information sessions – if it’s important to parents and carers of young children, you will find it at Tots and Teapots.

Feedback has already shown that parents and carers - especially new parents - will find this cafe a cure for loneliness, and also that it is a needed commodity both for the people who will use the cafe, and the people who won't (they will have a child-free cafe space back!)
