Forming Bonds

Playgroup NSW

Wed 23-Aug-17


Like her own mother, Corrina Svennetti knew that joining a playgroup would be a great way to form friendships with other mums in the area.

“It’s great to talk with other parents about their children and what they are doing," she says. "I’ve formed new friendships and learnt about new activities in the community.”

Corrina and her toddler daughter, Chelsea, attend Gooden Drive Playgroup in Baulkham Hills -- the same one Corrina attended with her mum a generation ago. Many of the same play structures are still there, including a wooden boat and cars, which Corrina remembers climbing when she was young.

Corrina started going to the playgroup with Chelsea because she wanted her to socialise with children and adults who weren’t family members. “My daughter is also really active” she adds, “so I thought a new activity would be exciting for her. She’s learning to interact with other people and is forming bonds with the other children who attend.”

Also, she says, attending weekly playgroup is a good way to start establishing routines for both mother and child, and offers the opportunity to introduce new activities and skills.
