Playgroups and toy libraries
To contain the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) across the community, we are aware some playgroups and toy libraries have closed. Please contact the organisers directly to inquire about their operational status
Our playgroups and toy libraries offer great opportunities for babies, toddlers, preschoolers to develop and practice new skills, make new friends, gain confidence and develop physically, emotionally and intellectually.
While children develop, parents and carers have the opportunity to make new friends and create connections within the community.
