Welcome To Playgroup!
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9.30 am – 12 pm
(including school holidays by arrangement)
Manakau playgroup is run by mums, dads and caregivers for all under 5 year old children.
The group works hard to provide an atmosphere where parents can assist their children with learning and play. Playgroup prides itself on the relaxed and friendly nature of all parents and children as well as the large range of toys, art supplies and play equipment for all ages.
Manakau playgroup is a great support network for new mums as it provides a place to go when you need adult company or to trade ideas on sleeping, bathing, teething and other mind boggling baby issues
Morning tea is a shared affair, where everybody brings something to contribute to either the adult’s or kid’s (healthy) morning tea. A cost of $1 per family per session is used to contribute towards some of the running costs such as cleaning products, tea, coffee and milk.
As playgroup is run by those who attend, your input is valuable. Any new ideas and activities with the children are encouraged! Everyone with a spare hand helps tidy up at the end of the session, however we all understand how hard it is with new babies or grumpy pre-schoolers so there is no pressure on anyone to stay for the whole session. You are welcome to arrive and leave at any time during the session to fit in with you and your child’s needs.
