2nd - 4th YEAR
These are the years when our playgroups and under 5s events come into their own, as well as Q&A sessions for those "tearing your hair out" issues.
Our free Tumbletimes sessions alone would save you at least $36 a year!
5th YEAR PLUS
We really appreciate our "graduate" members and arrange several over 5s events each year, like movie nights and the disco, as well as parent-only events.
Membership fees can be waived under special circumstances. Please contact our President if you wish to discuss this option.
