Playgroups can be an important part of a child's social and emotional development. They provide opportunities for children to interact with their peers, learn to share and take turns, and develop communication and problem-solving skills.

Playgroups can also be beneficial for parents and caregivers, as they provide a supportive community where they can connect with other adults who are going through similar experiences. They also offer opportunities for parents to share parenting tips and advice, and to get information about local resources and services.

Montessori education has been gaining popularity in recent years. With exciting and visualising appealing invitations to play, children are free to explore and engage in the activities, resources and open-ended toys on offer as well as traditional Montessori work.
Children can be immersed in a child-led free play environment that appeals to their natural curiosity and desire to learn through play.
Each week our sessions centre around a new theme (see below). Through these themes we provide a new variety of activities from sensory play, small world play, messy play and schematic play opportunities, among others.
