One of our most regular and popular support events is hosting playgroups for young prems of different ages and at different stages of development.


The Neonatal Trust (Auckland) Developmental Playgroup is for babies who have been through a NICU or SCBU unit.  It is appropriate for babies from when they go home from the unit, until they are cruising furniture.  Click here to contact us and seek further information.


Due to the lack of numbers attending the current Waikato playgroup, it has been decided that the playgroup will be postponed for a period. If you would like to contact Waikato to discuss any plans to resume the playgroup, please contact
