Getting out and about with multiples can feel like a daily challenge

..but we all know the feeling of success and increased well-being that comes with achieving a good day.

Right from the start, Multiples Canterbury has a range of regular and one-off events to assist and support you, continuing throughout your parenting journey.

PLAYGROUPS

Our playgroups are well-equipped, safe, and engaging for under 5s and their parents. Each is a place you can come for a chat and support, have a break from the house, give the children a run around and a chance to play with others, and enjoy different toys. 

Older and younger siblings are more than welcome to attend our playgroups too, for instance during school holidays. Yes, unlike many playgroups we keep going through the holidays (except for a few weeks over Christmas and New Year), because a break wouldn't actually be a break!

All you need to bring is food for your children, and a gold coin donation towards venue hire and morning tea for parents.
