Who is the Little Dragonflies playgroup for?
Little Dragonflies Playgroup is a neurodiversity friendly space for families who may show traits of Autism, ADHD, sensory processing disorder and/or global development delay. No formal diagnosis is required. Children between the ages of 0-5 years are welcome with their parents or caregivers.
How will the Little Dragonflies playgroup benefit our family?
This supported playgroup is designed to benefit the whole family. It is a space for families with children that have a disability or developmental concern to share their experiences, ask questions and seek advice from each other.
Little Dragonflies provides a trusted and non- judgmental playgroup where children can explore, play and have fun in their own unique ways.
The secure and safe community play spaces provide parents/carers with the opportunity to take time to relax and engage in adult conversations. This will support parents to foster friendships and social networks within the playgroup and local community.
