Jika Jika Community Centre hosts a number of playgroups. You might like to join one or start your own.

Jika supplies toys, rooms and art/craft supplies for playgroups for just $3 per attendance per family.

Playgroups are for babies, toddlers and preschoolers and their parents or carers.

Playgroups are low cost and run by the parents or carers in them. Each parent or carer is responsible for the children they bring to playgroup.

Playgroups allow you get to meet other people going through similar experiences, ease the isolation that can come with caring for young children and find out about local community, health and support services.

Contact Jenny, our Playgroup Coordinator, for more information.
