Connecting Children, families and Communities

A fun, stimulating environment providing free play based activities, educational play and social interaction for parents and children to age 5 yrs. The Mossman Moppets Playgroup offers babies and young children a wide variety of fun experiences that help them to learn about their world, make friends and develop new skills.

Playgroups provide mums, dads, grandparents and caregivers a chance to meet and build friendships, which allows for a safe environment to share ideas and experiences.

Families at Playgroup can facilitate children’s play and learning by providing a rich, learning environment, time to interact with their peers, and activities to bond with their caregivers.

Our playgroup sessions have a regular routine in a safe outdoor play area with group story/ music time and a range of organised activities for babies and toddlers.  The group continues to meet during most school holidays.
