View PDF   Dear Members, Welcome to October! As many of you may know, BAMBI started its playgroup at British Club 35 years ago. Since then, BAMBI has grown and is running between 11 and 13 playgroups per week, plus new members coffee morning and pop-up playgroups. That is around 50 playgroups a month! This is a very impressive achievement, and I would like to say a humble and heartfelt thank you to all BAMBI volunteers for their hard work and to all BAMBI members for supporting BAMBI. Have you already experienced the new playgroups that opened after the summer? If not, here are the highlights of our new playgroups: Sathorn Playgroup at La Petite Ecole (Monday): This playgroup offers beautiful gardens for your little ones to walk around and play. Also, you can experience the Reggio Emilio approach in a French/English bilingual environment. Bangna Playgroup at Berkeley (Monday): Yes, Bangna playgroup is back!! This playgroup is semi-structured with Arts & Crafts/Music/Storytelling activities lead by volunteers. We are opening up a couple more new playgroups soon, so please don’t miss out!! One of our new initiatives is running a monthly ‘pop-up’ playgroup with free admission for BAMBI members. This is a Saturday-morning playgroup at a different venue every month. BAMBI’s pop-up playgroups have been very popular, thanks to our members. I am grateful to the schools for offering us their commitment to host the playgroup and conduct activities on Saturdays, and to our pop-up playgroup team for making these run smoothly.  Moreover, we are happy to give our members opportunities to see different schools and try new environments. The next pop-up is at Pattana in October. Please join us there! Don’t forget, before coming to any BAMBI playgroup, please check our website calendar and/or Facebook whether the playgroup is on, just in case. See you all at the playgroups!!
