Books & Butterflies is a free weekly playgroup that offers a supportive and inclusive learning environment for children aged 3-5 years of age, who may not otherwise have access to community playgroups or other services.
Our activities and program content are facilitated by professionally qualified child therapists, providing great opportunities for learning and socialisation that are needed for young children to successfully transition into preschool and kindergarten.
Using unstructured and creative play, Books & Butterflies also supports parents to be more responsive to their children’s learning needs, social development and emotional growth, resulting in a stronger bond between parent and child.
In addition, our playgroup is regularly joined by guest speakers from community health and education to discuss specific parenting topics and challenges.
Books & Butterflies supported playgroup runs from 9:30am-12pm every Tuesday during NSW school terms 2, 3 and 4. It takes place in our Lismore community hub at 76 Carrington Street, Lismore NSW 2480.
