First Friends was founded in August 2007 and is the 'brainchild' of Liz Wassenaar. She aimed to provide a safe, friendly environment for children to play in and for parents to meet and be able to make contacts and to feel part of a community. Essentially, First Friends has been the place where many of us have met our first friends after relocating to the area!
The Playgroup meets on Wednesdays at the Spelewey (click here to see a map) during the Dutch School Terms, between 9:30 and 11:30 AM. The morning usually begins with singing, followed by free-play for the kids with toys, books, play-doh etc. The morning is rounded-off by singing and sometimes even dancing! Once a month, a themed activity (featuring craft, play or learning) is organised.
First Friends is currently run by a committee of volunteers and is funded by the contributions from visitors. The play sessions run smoothly thanks to all who help out with tidying up, washing up, sweeping etc etc.
In addition to the Wednesday mornings, the committee also aims to periodically organise social events (with and without the kids).
Come and play too! :)
