Would you attend a playgroup if your kids were in kindy full-time?

Just wondering...do your kids really want to attend another playgroup on the weekend after spending 5 days at kindy anyway?

I wouldn't think so. Are the kindy days full days or half days?

The kids probably wouldn't care but if you're looking for your own local network or trying to establish friendships for yourself it would be worthwhile.

Or if your kindy is not local for whatever reason, you might like to do it so that they'll meet kids who are going to go to the same primary school.

Or they might like it if it has good toys and you are sometimes playing with them, as well as chatting to the Mums - sometimes it's good to have some forced interaction after a busy week.  Easy to get caught up in the chores at home!  (that might just be me though!)

Not after 5 days at kindy, no.

If the kids are happy to attend then I would. The beauty of Playgroups is that it's an opportunity for the parents to mingle and get support for one another as well as the benefits for the children wink.gif
