St John’s Parent and Toddler Playgroup

The playgroup held on a weekly basis throughout the year, except for statutory holidays. The group meet in the Fanny Li Hall of the Cathedral.

On Thursdays everyone is welcome to attend the Group from 2.30-4.30pm.

This group exists as much for parents as it does for the youngsters: children have the opportunity to interact and have a large, open space in which to run around, parents get the chance to socialise, swap notes and take a breather from the day-to-day routine. It has been a popular venue for new parents and newcomers to Hong Kong alike. We welcome children from birth up to two years old and provide a range of toys to suit all ages.

There are a number of ground rules that apply:

  • Children must be accompanied by one of their parents or grandparents throughout the session
  • Parents are responsible for the safety of their children
  • All attending are asked to participate and help in the activities of the Group including getting toys out and packing away, cleaning up, etc.

The St John’s Playgroup represents fair value: it offers a degree of flexibility not available through similar organisations in Hong Kong. Being a non-profit-making organisation and operating on a purely voluntary basis, parents wishing to participate in the playgroup are expected to meet some of the responsibilities required to keep the group running.

We are a friendly, informal group. Whether you are a new parent or a newcomer to Hong Kong, we look forward to welcoming you. If you are interested in attending any of our sessions, please contact Mrs Vanda Cole at 2855 7074.
