German

“Willkommen & Hallo” to all German speaking moms and kids!

Please join our weekly German “Hallo, hallo schoen das du da bist!” playgroup on Thursday afternoons in Devonshire.
We will sing and dance to fun German songs, read books and have some playtime afterwards. Don’t be shy to join, even if your level of German is basic.

Please contact Christine at christinejuenemann@yahoo.de if you would like to join.

Indian

The Indian Playgroup does not have a set time/place but Sheetal plans to have the group meet either Mondays or Fridays at a park, restaurant or perhaps having a potluck at one of the Playgroup’s member’s homes.

Sheetal has formed the Indian Playgroup to help Indian families with kids connect. She feels it is important for children to learn about their Indian culture and feels that the playgroup can help Indian kids stay close to their roots/traditions.

By celebrating the Indian festivals together it will help the children understand their significance.

She invites you all – whether from the North, South, East or West to come and be a part of helping our children understand the importance and richness of our culture and traditions.

For more information and details please e-mail sheetalbehal@gmail.com.

Japanese

The Japanese playgroup doesn’t have a set day/time, but usually meet on Friday after school. Venues include parks, playgrounds, members’ houses and sometimes at child-friendly restaurants for lunch. During school breaks, we tend to have a potluck type of gathering. At playgroups try to bring something “cultural” when there is a special holiday or event of Japan.

Currently, attended by children from 1-11 years old, including non-Japanese members who have studied Japanese or lived in Japan.
