Forbes Play Group

Wed 27 March at 10:30 am - 12:30 pm


Play group is about getting together with other parents, children, babies, caregivers and families to have positive parent/child interactions, share ideas, information and experiences in a casual environment that welcomes all community members.

Children learn through play and other daily experiences. It’s a great environment for positive development growth, participation in new experiences, learning about the world around them, developing and increasing social skills and confidence, learning about sharing, co-operation and simple routines and interaction with other adults and children in a safe environment.
