What is Dragonflies?
Dragonflies is a family group drop in for parents and carers with pre-school children. We are run by Home-start Guernsey and have a dedicated play leader.
Our emphasis is on creating a warm, welcoming, inclusive environment that encourages and supports parents and carers to interact with and aid their child’s learning and development.
The group provides a supportive environment to parents who have at least one child under five.
The group offers parents and carers the chance to make new friends and to build an informal support network.
Who can attend?
Parents, relatives or family friends who care for pre-school children.
What is the cost?
There is no charge for our drop in.
Do I need to book?
No booking required just turn up at any time throughout the morning. We do have a register to complete each time you attend.
What is included?
We have a large supply of toys for the children to play with and they have the chance to interact with others.
An outdoor area for play.
General activities are always available including arts and crafts.
Story and rhyme time.
With the support of Guille Allez Library we also have library books that can be taken home.

Support services for families
Every year, in hundreds of local communities across the UK, Home-Start helps thousands of families who are struggling to cope.
Parent volunteers offer support and friendship to other parents through home visiting, via family and specialist groups and through social events.
- Families need support for many reasons:
- Struggling to cope with postnatal illness
- A child’s disability
- Family breakdown or bereavment
- Multiple problems at once
- Feeling isolated and unable to connect with friends or the community
Whatever the reason, Home-Start provides non-judgemental practical and emotional support and helps build the families confidence and ability to cope.
Support services provided:
“The day a family feels it no longer needs Home-Start support is a good day for Home-Start”
Home-Start runs more services and has more volunteers supporting more families than any other family support charity in the UK.
We have a number of different family sacks that we are able to lend out to family’s.
Our Story sacks help:
They are also educational and touch on different aspects of life including emotions, feelings, diversity and bereavement.
