These fun, free weekly playgroups are for families that may have particular vulnerabilities or needs, or require extra support to assist in strengthening the child-parent relationship. Our Playgroup leaders are available to assist and help in a variety of ways. Families can seek advice, learn about local support services, and expand their social network in a supported community playgroup setting. Play is a child’s natural language. Attendance at a playgroup can help children’s social, emotional, physical and language development by providing an opportunity to learn and practice new skills.
The friendly, welcoming playgroup sessions include:
• Child led free play activities inside & outside Structured Art & Crafts

• Therapeutic support to improve parent’s skills and independence
