Many parents say Playgroup is a great way to connect with others, share experiences and learn skills to promote their child’s development. The sessions are facilitated by our qualified Social Worker, Michelle Shinnick.

A typical session at Playgroup includes:

  • Morning circle
  • Book sharing
  • Free play, such as a sensory craft
  • Morning tea
  • Outside play
  • Farewell song
