    My son is 14 months and goes to the Woodlands Peak playgroup and loves it. We also have playgroups with friends etc but what Woodlands offers is a structured class with free play/songs/movement/arts&crafts - possibly things you wouldn't normally do at home. For example we did hand painting today and there is no way I would do this in my own home because of the mess! It's obviously a personal choice but I really recommend it.

    Our kids paint all the time at home. They wear daddy's old t-shirts to keep the clothes clean and go at it on an easel. Watercolors so the mess is easily cleaned. And, yes there is some mess, but not like they go around painting the whole apartment.

    Sleuth, I agree with the other ladies here. My son has plenty of play dates, daily park time plus home and outside activities. And he has also been going to a more-formal play group since he was 13 months old. He really enjoys all the above. I dont see them being mutually exclusive... it's really a personal choice.

    Hi - My child is currently in a playgroup at HK KIDZ in Central. He seem to really enjoy it, he would even push me away to play with the other children once we get there! The staff are very nice and friendly, and they are all qualified to teach. The place is nice and colourful, just another option for you to check out. Hope this helps!
