How does a playgroup work though? (spinoff question) If they give you a certain time (9:30-11:30), is that mean you have to be there at 9:30 and leave at 11:30? Or can you go at any time of those hours given?

This is a spinoff from my previous question.

Idk if a playgroup is some sort of a class. Thanks for any info you ladies can help me with.

  • no you can go when ever. do you know the person holding the play group? If you can't get there right away just let them know you will be late. It is just a bunch of women getting together with their kids. Not a class.

  • It's held by a parents support group. They teach classes such as what to expect, breastfeeding, and such. And they do the play group.

  • I've been part of a few play groups. None that were really structured. We had certain time's we'd meet up. We'd normally get there at the start time and leave shortly after it was scheduled to be over. Some playgroups had specific age ranges, some not. We would let the kids play, parents would talk, share stories, compare "notes" and just hang out. We would meet at the park, playground, or local zoo. If at someone's house, there was usually an activity like finger painting, coloring, etc. There was a show on TLC. I cannot think of the name of it, but it sounds like what you're explaining. A group moms would meet at a coffe shop. There was a "moderator", everyone brought their kids, and each week they discussed different topics and let the kids play. It wasn't necessarily a class. It was just a place to come together, socialize and learn with other moms with similar or even very different expericences.
