WHAT started 18 years ago in the liv­ing room of Jan Kime’s home has turned into life­long friend­ships for some for­mer Lit­tle Vegemites.

And as those friend­ships stay strong, Mrs Kime said new friend­ships were be­ing formed as the Lit­tle Vegemites Play­group re­mains the bread and but­ter of Childers.

The weekly play­group is a con­cept Mrs Kime has come to know well as her role as a fos­ter carer sees her main­tain her long-time mem­ber­ship of the group.

Mrs Kime is an avid be­liever in the role of play­groups and stressed the im­por­tance of play­group for both the child and the par­ent.

“It’s so im­por­tant for preschool­ers and ba­bies to learn how to so­cialise and play along­side one an­other,” she said.

“And for the moth­ers, a lot come along who have just moved into to the area. It’s lovely to see those friend­ships form.

“We try and make it in­clu­sive.

“Any­one who wants to come along can.“

For a group that meets for just two hours a week, they sure know how to fit a lot in.

From free play to craft, snack time and out­door play, it sure is all about happy Lit­tle Vegemites in Childers.
