    Meet our Playgroup Coordinator

    Sophie Havis

    Hello and welcome to Playgroup! I am an experienced and passionate early childhood educator who has had the privilege of working extensively with babies and young children.

    Our Playgroup offers a fun and interactive way for children and their families to learn and discover together through a variety of experiences and activities. For children, play and learning are intricately linked; through play, children learn about the world around them and develop essential problem-solving, social and physical skills.

    At Playgroup, children and their families can interact with others at the same stage of life and build a community of support. This time is a wonderful opportunity to spend with your child in a supportive and flexible environment.
