Taieri Parents Centre run two play groups every week. Free to members they are a great opportunity for parents and caregivers to get together for a coffee and chat while the children are able to play in a safe environment. Both playgroups are certified and funded by the Ministry of Education, meaning we have some excellent resources at our disposal, along with a guideline of activities for each week.
Our Wednesday morning playgroup is from 9:30-11:30am during term time and is open to any age child up to 5 years old. This is not a structured playgroup. The children are encouraged to pursue free play during these sessions. We have great outdoor facilities with a sandpit, large deck and a variety of bikes for the kids to use. We try to have two outings a term to give the children different experiences (weather dependent).
Bumps & Bubs runs on a Thursday afternoon from 1:30-3pm and is aimed at expectant parents and parents with babies aged up to 18 months old. Again it is an unstructured session with a variety of toys out for the children, and an opportunity for the parents to chat and share stories. We usually have two speakers per term covering a variety of relevant topics.
