    Hi all, just moved from UK to NorthAdelaide ( the suburb). Have 3 kids ( 10 week baby, 2 year old and 4 year old). Does anyone know of any playgroups/mum and baby groups in this area where mums can meet other mums?

    Hi, we are in Brighton. We go to a playgroup on friday mornings. Take a look at this link http://www.playgroupaustralia.com.au/, you will need to send them an email to register your interest at attending a group. We have only been once but fully intend to go next week as well. The first two sessions are free.

    Not sure about coffee mornings, but if you do find any please let me know.

    Hope this helps

    hello,

    the Barker kindergarten in Tynte St will have a playgroup and your 4 yo may be able to attend kindy sessions there for the rest of the year. Here is some info http://barkerkgn.sa.edu.au/docs/Playgroup%20Information%20leaflet%202010.pdf .There is another kindy in Lower Nth Adelaide, Lucy Morris Kindergarten(in Sussex st nr Melbourne St). The Baptist church in Tynte st used to have a playgroup also. Christ Church also has a playgroup. Most church playgroups are on a Friday. The big church St Peter's Cathedral has a playgroup on Tuesdays during term time. The library in Tynte St may have story sessions for pre schoolers.

     

    Hope this helps

    Brilliant- thanks everyone for some really useful info. From what I've seen so far, it's a very friendly place and shouldn't be too difficult to make friends. And how great is the aquatic centre? Kids all signed up for swimming lessons. Oh and yes the flight was the nightmare I expected it to be but could have been worse and contary to what I'd heard before hand, the Quantas/ BA staff were all very helpful.

    Gemma have you booked into a hospital yet, because your midwives can probably point you in the way of a mums to be group. They usually are a group of mums due around the same time.
