Playgroups are a wonderful place for parents to meet other parents, and for kids to make friends. They are usually held for an hour or two once a week, and are free. Call your local Parent Child Center or Success By Six program for up-to-date information on times and places. You can also click on the link below for information
You could even start your own playgroup by inviting friends to play at your house, or arrange for everyone to meet at a nearby park, playgound or recreation path.
