Supporting families and whānau is one of the most important things Plunket does and playgroups are an essential part of this.
Plunket playgroups are non-profit early childhood centres in local communities where groups of parents, whānau and children meet regularly. Children get valuable educational and social experiences and parents get to meet and make new friends and share experiences.
There are more than 180 Plunket playgroups throughout the country so they can be found in many communities. Most groups meet weekly and some fortnightly.
Some groups get together for music or movement groups and others have a full range of play activities suitable for all age groups up to the age of five.
Talk to your Plunket nurse about what is available in your area.
