Playgroups in KL

Playgroups can save lives, really! If you need company and somewhere safe and fun to let the tiny humans get used to other tiny humans, you need a playgroup. By playgroup we mean generally a place where toddlers can play in a safe environment with a parent – who can have a normal adult chat if he/she so wishes.

However, in an environment generally geared more towards learning than fun, our list of free and paid options in KL evidently includes a few that are more structured and require a registration but they still fall in the “fun” category. The details may change so do check the organisers’ pages before heading out!
