Playgroups

Our volunteers run several playgroups throughout the year at various locations across the island.

Friendly reminder: Please sign in and pay when you arrive. The money is used to cover church hall rental and for snacks.

Fees: Members $5, Non-members $10 (Prices are per family attending).

Parish Playgroup Etiquette:
  • Playgroup is only free if you have a voucher and that can be used once at one playgroup.

  • IOUs to be settled the following week or ASAP (the venues, along with the food, crafts, and parties all cost money, so it is important that everyone makes sure to pay so we can continue to host playgroups.)

  • Encourage children to sit when eating.

  • At the beginning of singing time, minimize chatting between one selves so that announcements can be made and heard.

  • No dirty nappies and diapers in the garbage; please remove from premises.

  • Provide child’s own beverages (playgroup milk reserved for tea and coffee only.)

  • Everyone to mind their own children – no drop-offs.

  • If bringing birthday cakes, please provide paper plates, candles, serviettes, and cutlery. Sometimes we do not have enough.
