Books & Butterflies

We are excited to announce our new free weekly playgroup! Books & Butterflies offers a supportive learning and play space for children aged 3-5 years old, who may not have access to similar play or learning opportunities.

Our playgroup activities are delivered by professionally qualified child therapists. This means that we can customise the playgroup experience to include specific learning, behavioural or emotional challenges a child may face. Our activities provide great opportunities to help children get ready for the move to preschool and kindergarten.

Books & Butterflies is for parents and carers too! Using fun and creative play, we support parents and carers to connect with their children’s learning, social development and emotional growth, which creates stronger bonding.

We are also regularly joined by guest speakers from community health and education to discuss specific parenting topics and challenges.

Books & Butterflies supported playgroup commences on 30 April 2019 and will run every week 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. Bookings are essential.
