Pre-school playgroups exist to help children, but they can do this most effectively by helping parents too. The programme examines the effects of playgroups on both children and their parents in two very different environments. An Essex couple, recently moved to Devon, and a couple born and bred in Bootle explain how their involvement in playgroups is helping them as well as their children to grow and develop. In both cases the children are new to their playgroups, and react quite differently. The four playgroup leaders were originally ‘just mothers’ who are now passing on the benefit of their experience.
