Vision First Cultural Diversity Playgroup – playtime with a difference

Parties & PlayPost Category - Parties & PlayParties & Play

At Sassy Mama, we love finding activities to do with our little ones, especially when those activities also give something back. This is why we were very keen to find out more about the Cultural Diversity Playgroup, set up by Vision First, an independent non-profit organisation that helps refugees in Hong Kong.

The playgroup invites parents to share their little ones’ playtime with the children of refugees whose parents are being helped by Vision First. Set up last year, the playgroup has become very successful with parents and kids alike.

The playgroup runs every Thursday morning from 11am to 12.30pm in Kennedy Town and is for tots from 6 months to 3 years old (accompanied by one parent).

CDP 2013 FlyerEach session includes the familiar playgroup staples such as the welcome circle, music and movement, free play, story time, and good-bye songs. But as part of the opening session, everyone briefly introduces themselves and shares where their children were born. It’s not only fun but astonishing to learn the diverse origins of all the participants.

In most sessions there are over 14 different nationalities, often with special guests from Congo, Uganda, Rwanda performing which not only goes down well with the kids but with the parents too! Favourites include drummers from the Congo, and Filipino singers. It’s wonderful to see your little one wandering around and engaging so freely with kids from different cultural backgrounds.

So, they say that charity begins at home, but if you’re like me and your home is too small and cabin fever with a tot regularly strikes, this is a great opportunity not only to get out of the house, but for you and your little one to meet and make new friends from diverse cultural backgrounds while helping Vision First with their mission to provide a better life for refugees in Hong Kong.
