ACC Playgroup
Playgroup is generally held the first Wednesday of the month from 10am
onwards, in school holidays this may change. We also run some Sunday Playgroups which are from 11am onwards to provide partners, families or older children who are unable to come to the Wednesday playgroups, an opportunity to attend as well. This is a great support network for parents of adopted children - and also for prospective parents considering adoption or going through the approval process.
