The Orange Supported Playgroup is a project that aims to replicate and build on the success of the Orange Bush Babies group.
Bush Babies playgroup was established by the Orange Women's Gathering with the Council's support to meet a need in the community as seen by these women.
The playgroup not only caters for pre-school aged children but provides vital social support for families in the area.
You can stay in touch with the latest events by 'Liking' the Supported Playgroup Facebook page.
