Welcome to the Marple Website
The Marple Directory

This listing was originally created at the suggestion of Paula, a regular visitor who had a baby in early 2001 and had been looking for this kind of information in a number of places.

It's compiled from information within the public domain but relies on users and service providers to keep it up to date. A special thanks to all the local mums who have helped to keep it current by advising me of changes and additions.

If you are aware of any details that are incorrect or out of date, please get in touch. If you are involved with an organisation that you think should appear in this list, please get in touch too.

For more information on registered childcare, toddler groups, support groups and self help in the Stockport area, visit Stockport Council's web site.
