North Ringwood Playgroup is a place where tiny tots and preschoolers aged from newborn to four years old can socialise, play and learn.

Welcome to all our new and returning members at North Ringwood Playgroup!

What a wonderful time of the year for some Playgroup time! The sun is shining, the days are feeling longer and it feels great to be in the sun.

Looking ahead for term 4 we have some messy play and some great festive craft. Each group has the opportunity to get a Dad/grandfather/carer to dress up as Santa and hand out gifts to the children.

Recently we have had some changes happening to the outside area: painting around the sandpit, new mats for the babies to play on (that covers the ditch that has been forming) and some cleaning. We have some things coming our way soon too: fix ups for the cubby and sandpit area and a new awning over the sandpit.

I am thrilled with the success of the AGM that we held on 22nd October. Thank you to everyone that came. We really appreciated your presence. Not only did we have a fun night, but we also organised a committee for 2019. I am confident that this committee will be a fantastic one and I wish them all of the very best for the year to come.

It has been an honour to be the President of the Playgroup this year. Initially I was a bit daunted by this role but overall it hasn’t been anywhere near as hard as I had imagined it would be. Being the President was enjoyable and was definitely made a whole lot easier having such an amazing Committee to work with.

Since this is the last newsletter for the year, even though it feels ridiculous to say this in October, I would like to wish you all a very happy and safe summer holiday time. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I hope you get to enjoy some very special times with your children, family and friends.

Siobhan Merritt (President for 2018)
