    there are TONS of playgroups in db. if you can find yourself a copy of the INSIDE DB magazine, they often list them.

    i also run a playgroup in tsing yi, so there are options out there if you don't feel like trekking all the way into central/causeway bay.

    Panda is structured so the first half is free play (in a great room with lots of stimulating things to play with, and lots of space for them to play in) and the second half is more structured (circle time, songs, activities etc). My son loves Panda (but each child is different!) and it's helped him socialise with other children. I think he picked up more 'social skills' like sharing, taking turns etc in his regular playgroup, which has longer sessions. Having said that, we've been teaching him these things at home on informal playdates as well. Good luck!

    Panda Junction is great! Our son started going from 6 months until 18 months. The structure is great as it's free play for the first half, then structured music class during the 2nd half. It's a great mix of moms and helpers and the songs they sing, my son knows. The teachers are caring and high energy which is extremely important to us.

    If Discovery Bay, why not try First and second Friends at Marina Club?

    Cara, I got a copy of D'Magazine and there is no list of playgroups... Am I getting the wrong mag?

    Mscheerful, can I join playgroup in Marina Club if I am not a resident of DB? How can I join it? Should I be a member first?

    Thanks everyone for your input!

    it used to be called INSIDE DB....i haven't lived there for a few years, so it may have changed name...

    there is also a forum for db residents (dbforum.com) that you may be able to find more information on....
    good luck!

    ps> yes, i believe that anyone can join first & second friends...
