Covid-19 Updates

Some of our programmes and events have been cancelled or postponed this week (1-7 March) while we're in Level 2. For a full list of updates please see Covid-19 Updates.

Baby Bounce & Rhyme

A weekly half-hour programme of songs, rhymes and fingerplays especially for children aged 0-2 years and their parent/caregiver.

Building a foundation for literacy starts as soon as a child is born, and every story, song, rhyme or fingerplay strengthens that foundation. Help your child get a head start by joining other parents and their little ones for companionship, fun and interaction.
