So what is a Playgroup WA? A Playgroup is a group of parents and caregivers who meet with their children and babies in a relaxed and friendly environment. Each session is usually 2 hours long and each Playgroup is run by the families that attend.
Some Playgroups are structured and follow a set routine each session while others operate on a more fluid base. Some Playgroups consist of only the one session while other Playgroups can have over 20 sessions running each week.
Playgroup WA gives children an opportunity to:
· have fun
· make new friends, and
· develop new skills through informal play.
Playgroup WA provides parents and carers with:
· an opportunity to meet other parents and carers,
· make friends, and
· share ideas and experiences.
Playgroup WA also allows parents and carers to

Research tells us that children are spending less time playing, less time outside and more time in front of the TV and computer screens. At the same time, families are being bombarded with special ‘classes’ for young children which promise to prepare them for all sorts of success, at a fee. At Playgroup you can let your child play and argue and learn without being worried about having a ‘programme’.
Pre3Montes Playgroup environment provides a range of graduated activities that suit the unfolding developmental stages of children aged 0-4. Children can pursue tasks at their own pace and independently with just a little help from Mum or Dad.
Careful understanding of the development of infants enables us to create a place that meets their needs. It is a parent-infant community facilitated by a Montessori Playgroup Leader where young children can engage in activities that assist their psychomotor skills, language acquisition, growing independence, and their understanding of the world.
