“Community playgroups help decrease the sense of isolation so common for parents and those caring for young children at home”


We believe that families are
childrens’ first educators!

For over 20 years, our organisation through   community playgroup has empowered parents and encouraged them to recognise the role they play in their child’s development. Playgroup allows parents to take time out of a busy life, to slow down and enjoy playing with their child and meet with other parents in a healthy, educational and friendly environment!
