2 months..

Ash's playgroup session is over for the year. A little too early methinks. But, the staff wanted a break and to prepare for their holidays, Christmas and other family stuffs...

Then, I started to moan and groan to the other moms about what I was going to do with lil Ms Ash for the next 2 months. Seriously, you have no idea what playgroups can do for your kids and for a mom of course. They are the best!! Initially Ash was this clingy kid but the last 6 months or so, that place was like her home. In fact, it's better than her home - it was her toy heaven!! Plus, she made her own friends throughout the year that she's been with them. We've had the best of both worlds whilst there.

We will surely miss some of the kids next year but most of them are returning for the playgroup like I am going to with Mini. ANd some have opted to return for the extension program instead of sending their kids to kindergarten or preschool...like me. Ash will not be attending a kindy proper next year, she will instead be joining the extension program for 4 year olds. This program will be conducted by a qualified teacher and the aim of this program is to prepare kids for kindergarten/preschool the following year.

Before the mayhem starts again next year, the little mayhem will be starting soon with Ash being activity-less for 2 months. I can foresee myself aging a lot more in the next 2 months. It looks like I may need a much stronger anti wrinkle serum if I want to re-claim my youth..heheh

Does the extension program for 4 year olds teach ABCs and 123 or just play only without proper study? CS

I love my playgroup too!!! Its so much more than a playgroup for the little ones...bonding with other moms too! is playgroup run by volunteer mums or is there a proper structure?? OVer here playgroup's run by volunteer moms, and anyone can start a playgroup. There is a proper playgroup association body of course where you get support.

Cyn : I think it's the same here..where anyone can start one. But the one i've (and am) been going to is run by a church and the members who volunteer are mostly retired moms..(I say retired because they have very adult children).
