Greystanes Groovers Baby Playgroup runs every Monday during school term from 10:30am to 12pm. It is a wonderful way to meet other parents with bubs, learn from one another and develop a supportive local network for you and your family.
Attending the playgroup will also give your baby a chance to explore, interact and play with different toys, experience new textures, colours, noises and shapes and of course, to discover. At playgroup, babies have the reassurance of being with their parent or carer as they learn to interact, share and relate to other babies and adults in a safe environment. This helps build confidence, develops social skills and promotes self-esteem.
The morning normally starts with getting the mats out, grabbing a box of toys and putting the bubs down to play for a bit. The mums then grab some chairs to put in a circle around the mats. They take turns each week to organise a little activity for the bubs, like playing with bubbles, balloons or the parachute and have also made sensory bottles for the babies to roll and footprint paintings.
The Greystanes Groovers Playgroup runs everyday of the week and each playgroup session has a slightly different age group. Mondays is just for babies. They are very well equipped, with numerous toys and activities to engage children from babies to school age. The hall the playgroup is in at Nemesia Street Park has a large open area inside as well as a full fenced area outside.
