Pasifika playgroup

Pasifika playgroup provides an environment where parents can come and bring their young children (1-4yrs old) to play with other Pasifika children. Children get valuable educational and social experiences and parents get to meet and make new friends and share experiences.

Pasifika Playgroups programmes are focused on:

  • Supporting early learning / development of children
  • Socialisation with other children and parents
  • Incorporation of Pasifika culture through bilingual teaching, song and dance
