View Full Version : New to Heritage Park
I have recently moved to Heritage Park from Sydney and have been wondering where all the mums meet??
I have tried a playgroup which has now finished for the year. The local library story session is good but they are mainly family daycare mums that have their hands well and truely full. The local parks have no children playing in them.
I know the mums must be hiding somewhere as there are a number of large primary schools around.
I'm a SAHM with 2 kids DD (5 and Prep next year) and a DS (3 - well almost).
I would love to find some mums with kids of similar ages for the kids to play with and me to talk to.
Please help me find the hiding spots of the elusive mothers.
i live probably all of 1km from you but i work full time sorry. i find the same thing when im off work for the day or something and take DS to the parks they are always empty. When i was at home with him i used to meet up with the birth group from here but alot went back to work so doesnt happen often anymore. I used to take DS to rhyme time but travelled all the way over to north side to meet up with some other mums. Never really found anything local to this area to be honest.
if u go to the new playcentre up at browns plains near trade secret there its called geckos that is always packed with kids
I live in Windaroo but I am not sure how far that is from you. I have 2 girls age 6 and 3. There is a group of Logan mums that meet up at different areas. They have a page on facebook or you can email the organiser Nat at email@example.com
I went to my DD open day for prep today and was talking to some mums, one of them told be about a playgroup that doesn't break for school holidays to fingers crossed.
The mums were also saying that lots of mums spend time with family or shopping and playing in their own backyards.
I'm thinking that come next year with DD in school it is going to be easier.
Welcome to 4118!:yelclap:
I live in Regents Park, been here since the beginning of Feb this year. I don't do groups or meet ups, but if your keen for some company, give me a yell.
I work FT Mon - Fri :geek:, usually the weekends I like to spend with my boys,:reindeer: (21 months, and 4 months old)
Hope your settling well into the area!:flowerz:
Thanks for the invite my hubby works long hours during the week so we try to spend as much time together as a family on weekends.
It seems that this new playgroup is much busier then the one I tried first but they too are not meeting during school holidays.
On the plus side I have meet another family in the street. I'm thinking slowly slowly I'll meet some more mums I just have to patient.
If anyone else has ideas about where families with young kids hang out over the school holidays please feel free to drop me a line.
Hu I live in springwood and I have been here for 3 years now I have a ds who is 3.5 and another due in feb. I still dont really know anyone around either and find it hard to make friends there is a parents and poppets group on facebook that is in the logan area I have joined but have yet to meet them but looking to do that in the new year.
I am a SAHM too so if you want to meet up somewhere we could do that. Another place is called wriggle it in kingston isnt too far from you.
Well you take care
Hello, I live 5 mins from Heritage Park, my parents still live in Heritage Park. If you dont mind me asking, which school is your DD enrolled in? I ask because even though it wont help until after the holidays, the schools generally have playgroups at both primary and High schools. I know there is one at Burrowes State Primary school, Park Ridge High and also another at Browns Plains High, run by the Early Childhood Coordinator of the schools I think. My kids attend Regents Park State Primary School and I think they may have one already or soon to be starting, but they definitely have before/after school care and vacation care. There is also a place called The Music Spot, they run KindaMusik classes if you can afford a structured play? Sometimes the parents become friends and meet up outside of class too. I tend to find I am not a playgroup type and dont tend to bond with the other mothers enough to be invited to hang out with them, usually the playgroup women are too judgmental of my lifestyle choice of having a large family and I guess most mothers cant relate to or dont want the inconvenience of a mother in their group who has more children than three of them combined:laughing: It is sad but true, although not necessarily the case with everyone I realise. I tend to take my kids to Wriggle It, but also Lollipops at Springwood is great too. I have been to Geckos once, for a birthday party, but other than that just waiting for holidays to finish as they cost more in entry on holidays and paying for 5 kids is a bit much just to get in. I think you will find once your DD starts school next year it will most definitely open you up to new friendships and invitations, especially of the birthday party variety! Good Luck and have a great and Merry Christmas:reindeer:
