This group is a nourishing precursor to Playgroup – an opportunity for families of children from newborn to one year to spend time together every week for 6 weeks. There will be a seventh gathering – date to be decided – where we can all meet in person over a cup of tea.

Each week will bring information about child development and respectful care practices as well as time to share stories about daily life and the work of becoming a parent and a family. Time to discuss tricky moments, ask questions and share joy. For parents to connect with other like minded families with new little ones.

This is a special program with an experienced teacher and playgroup leader Kate McMurray.

We request that families complete full payment two weeks before commencement of each term. Refunds can only be made on cancellations if another family can be found to fill the place. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this causes you. This is a trial program. If you have ideas or feedback on how to make this more relevant for the local community please email us.
