What is Playgroup?
Playgroup is an informal session where mums, dads, grandparents, caregivers, children and babies meet together in a relaxed environment so parents and caregivers can interact with the other adults and play with the children.
The activities at Playgroup are designed to meet the varying needs of children. They are low cost, and may include:
- Music and singing
- Imaginative play
- Outdoor and free play
- Art and craft activities
No child is too young for playgroup. All children from 0-5 years, including babies, love new experiences and benefit from developing sensory, social and communication skills through activities at Playgroup
How will your child benefit?
- Children like playgroup because they can:
- Participate in new experiences
- Develop and increase their social skills
- Learn sharing, co-operation and simple routines
- Interact with other adults and children in a safe environment
- Enjoy learning more about their world
Adults also benefit from Playgroup – it’s a time to talk, make friends and share experiences in a relaxed and friendly environment, while children learn through their play experiences
