I recently joined a playgroup run by the Chertsey Community Centre at Springfield. I think they are just fabulous. There are trained lovely ladies who run a varity of workshops for families including parenting classes and play sessions.
I was lucky enough to have them recommended to me, otherwise I may never have known about them.
They are currently running a variety of different play sessions and classes for all ages but the one I have joined could really do with some more children. They decided to run a play session specifically for 1-2 year olds. They do music, where they have introduced my son to a variety of weird and wonderful instruments he never would have had the chance to use, like Bongo drums! They read stories, sing songs and play unusual music as well as just allow the kids to play with the toys.
At the moment the session is on a Thursday from 10:00am until 12:00 and it costs just $4.00 a session. There is talk however of changing the day to a Friday, depending on what suits everyone and if that will help their numbers. Anyway if you like the sound of this playgroup and you want to know more you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or you can ring 4323 7158 and ask for Rosemary, or you can just turn up on the day!
