Playgroup information

There are playgroups in most rural areas on the West Coast, some of which are operated by WestREAP*, others which are parent-led^.  We have tried to list all of them here but if you notice any missing, or any information is not correct please let us know.  You can also find information in our What's On For Under 6s Flyer and for more information about early childhood activities in South Westland check out the South Westland Early Childhood 0-6 Years Facebook page.
