Posted at 12:04pm Tuesday 14 Jul, 2020
The Coast has plenty of options for young parents looking for activities to entertain their under fives.
Libraries have well-established programmes for toddlers, which resume next week.
Whangaparaoa Library has storytime, wriggle and rhyme, and rhythm and beats sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Friday mornings. A similar programme is offered at Orewa Library on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Orewa also has a Japanese storytime for three to five year olds on Friday mornings during school terms. For session information, visit aucklandlibraries.govt.nz
There are several Mainly Music sessions based around the Coast including the Orewa Community Church, St Chads Orewa and Silverdale. The programme introduces children to a range of music, dance and rhythm. Sessions provide an opportunity for parents and carers to socialise, as well as children. For more info: mainlymusic.org
Northen Arena is currently offering free baby swim lessons, sponsored by Manuka Doctore Skincare. The 30-minute classes are for babies aged two to six months, helping them to become confident in water.
