At Friendship Square Child Care & Kindergarten Co-Operative, we strive to make meaningful connections within our community.
2018 saw the beginning of community events which include Book Club, Walking Club and regular Information Evenings which we invite families and local community members to join.
Friendship Square Community Events
Come along for a leisurely walk for an hour, grab a coffee and let the kids play in the park afterwards. It's a great way to get to know other families on a social basis, it is free to attend and kids are welcome.
Join us for a child free evening discussing books and getting to know the parents & friends of Friendship Square. Our book club is a fun and relaxed quarterly event.
Our Information Nights are invaluable events for all families to attend. Experts are invited to talk to our community about varied topics that are relevant to our families.
Major Fundraising Events
In 2018, Friendship Square Child Care & Kindergarten Co-Operative held a Disco Bingo evening as the major fundraising event. The evening was heavily supported by local businesses who generously made donations ensuring the evening was a huge success. Families and friends of the centre came together for an evening for fun, laughter and fabulous music. The funds raised on the evening will be put straight back into the centre to improve the facilities and programs on at our centre.
