A place where children, moms, dads, grandparents and caregivers can play, learn and relax together!
We offer you a warm, caring supportive environment that recognizes the value of family in the development of happy, healthy children.
We offer seven play based programs for parents and/ or care givers with their children, aged birth to six years. They are FREE of charge and are offered in child friendly, safe, and stimulating environments. Each playroom will have a variety of centres such as sandbox, crafts, house-keeping, books and blocks. Play groups are not just for the children; parents and caregivers play with their child and other children, and have opportunities to talk to other parents and caregivers in a supportive, nurturing way.
It is never too early to join in a play group, there is something for everyone. Nutritious snacks are provided for all children. Bring a friend, tell a neighbour. They will be glad you did!
