A word from one of our parents…
‘I can’t recommend the program run by Lynne and Robyn highly enough! All the children are given all the support and attention they need to feel confident. Most important of all the hygiene is amazing, my daughter was never sick after attending. The love that Lynne and Robyn have for children is so special and their experience and patience that they have with the children is the best around’. Maria M

Monday Playgroup with Monika – 9.30 to 11.00am.
Playgroups provide a great opportunity for parents, or the carers of young children, to develop networks with other families in the area with children of a similar age. Carers are required to participate in the group and are responsible for the care of their own children. Monika ensures that there are a range of activities to suit babies and toddlers, including outside play in our playground (weather permitting).There is a maximum of 10 families in the group so you get time to interact with each other. Mum’s, Dad’s and Grandparents all welcome.
Cost: $6 per family, payable by the term (or part term if starting late). First visit free. $10 on a casual basis
