Playgroups

Playgroups are a great way for children to interact with others in a fun and safe environment along with a sense of belonging to the community, opportunities to form friendships and share ideas and information.

Our playgroups are designed to help children learn, play and grow. They provide children opportunities to develop fine motor skills,  hand-eye co-ordination as well as learning to socialise and talk with other children.
