Playgroup

“The child is the beauty of God present in the world, that greatest gift to a family.”
—St Teresa of Calcutta

Playgroup

The Holy Name Playgroup began in 2021 with the aim of providing a supportive environment for the parents of preschool aged children. Activities are intentionally designed to capture the interest and enhance the development of the children within a space where they can also interact with others. The activities are designed to be easily replicated within the home environment and can include playdough, painting, singing and mat games. Although the children are certainly a key focus of Playgroup, another primary goal is to provide young Catholic mothers with a chance to come together, to socialise and to meet each other.

Meeting on the third Friday of every month, Playgroup is assisted by volunteers and an experienced Occupational Therapist. 

“Let the children come to me, do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
Mark 10:14-15
