Season greetings from Playgroup NSW

Welcome to the Christmas edition of our eNews!

We hope you have enjoyed your year with us, including the welcome change of providing our membership free to all families with young children 0-5 in NSW. This received an overwhelmingly positive response from our playgroup community and our members, and we look forward to providing you with more exciting offers and value with your membership next year.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank the thousands of parents, carers and volunteers, and our staff, Board members and partners who continue to be a part of our wonderful journey – to lead in engaging families and communities in early childhood development, and to make playgroup accessible to all families with children 0-5 in NSW.

Playgroup NSW wishes you all the best this festive season and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2019!

Nadene Lee

Playgroup NSW CEO
