Playgroups in Joburg

So in South Africa, the only daycare you can find before your child turns three years old, is something you call playgroup or playschool. And how you find out about them? – well it is mostly word of mouth. Or someone ( a mum) has a list that he/she is willing to share.

What is a playgroup?

The lady (never met a man) that is in charge of the play group, uses her own property as the the play group area. She has turned her home and garden into a play ground for kids, with jungle jims, trampolines etc. The normal ratio is four kids per adult. And the time is often 08:00 – 12:00. You can choose how many days a week you want, but often the group is full so you take what you can get…

Here is a list of all the playgroups (I know of ) in my area.
