National Playgroup Week

IT’S not just play time ... it’s National Playgroup Week.

There has been a frenzy of excited squeals and a stampede of tiny limbs as Coffs Harbour’s littlies gathered this week under the theme of ‘Learning together through play’.

Coffs Harbour’s playgroup, which has been running for 33 years and meets at the Wesleyan Methodist Church Hall in Bray St, was a hive of activity.

Mother of two Rachael Langley said a fire truck came and the kids had fun clambering all over it.

“It was a great day for everyone and one of the mums brought a mini-jumping castle which kept the kids entertained,” Ms Langley said.

If you are interested in joining the playgroup, contact Rachael on 0437 937 298.

In NSW there are more than 1700 playgroup sessions with more than 50,000 parents and children meeting each week in halls, neighbourhood centres, churches, homes and parks.
