Playtime with other children develops their social skills, focus and self-control.
Playgroups are a great way for your child to learn through play and make new friends. They also provide an opportunity to meet and connect with parents.
Activities can include singing, dancing, craft, sports and free play. You can also offer your own ideas for activities to add variety to playgroup sessions.
In our area, we have playgroups for:
- parents and caregivers who speak other languages
- parents with additional needs.
