Ten Reasons to attend a playgroup
1. Children need to build social relationships with other children.
2. Children acquire school readiness skills through play.
3. Playgroups are a great place to meet other parents and caregivers.
4. Enjoy a cup of coffee and receive moral support in your challenging role as parent.
5. Finger paint, water and glitter creates a mess at our place, not yours!
6. Borrow some terrific new toys at no cost.
7. Talk to Early Learning Facilitators about concerns you may have regarding your child’s development.
8. Borrow books and resources on parenting issues.
