Playgroups can be such a wonderful way to connect with other local families – making new friends and sharing your parenting experiences. They are also a great way for your kids to interact with other kids, play with different toys and learn new activities. Plus, playgroups are a rather cheap way to spend a few hours each week and a perfect wet/ hot weather option. For further information on playgroups, including a list by day of playgroups welcoming new families, check out our Local Playgroups Guide.
