Our playgroups provide a supportive, inclusive and multicultural environment for mothers and their children (0 – 5 years old) from refugee and migrant backgrounds. Depending on capacity of the venue, these playgroups are also open to local/ non-migrant families as well which supports community integration.
The Safari Playgroups are free for families, they provide a fun learning environment where families can play and learn together. Mums can make new friends while their children gain independence and social skills, helping prepare them for pre-school education and school. During the playgroup the mothers can attend beginner English language classes. We also work with other service providers to run sessions to support the mother’s parenting skills and knowledge of community services.
