Books & Butterflies

Free, supported weekly playgroups.

Books & Butterflies is a free weekly playgroup that offers a supportive learning environment for children aged 2-5 years of age, who may not otherwise have access to community playgroups or other services.

Our inclusive activities are delivered by professionally qualified child therapists. Activities are designed to provide great opportunities for children to learn and socialise, helping them successfully transition into preschool and kindergarten.

Using unstructured and creative play, Books & Butterflies also supports parents to be more responsive to their children’s learning needs, their social development and emotional growth, resulting in a stronger bond between parent and child.

In addition, our playgroup is regularly joined by guest speakers from community health and education to discuss specific parenting topics and challenges.

Bookings are essential.

Books & Butterflies supported playgroups run once a week. Locations, days and times vary, please contact us for more details.
