Challenge runs activities that lets kids be kids!
During treatment, many children are unable to attend their usual playgroup, kindergarten or crèche as the risk of infection is just too high. Sometimes, their brothers and sisters are also unable to attend too due to the fear of them bringing home a bug. This leaves kids lacking in much-needed social interaction.
Held at the Challenge Family Centre every week and run by a qualified early childhood development specialist, Challenge Playgroup gives children the opportunity to continue socialising with their peers, while participating in a range of fun and age-appropriate activities. It is also a great opportunity for mums and dads to interact with each other in a safe environment.
Special activities are also organised throughout the year, including visits from Fairy Twinkletoes, an Easter egg hunt, and a visit from Santa at Christmas time.
