Play group

New Community Playgroup is a fun time for all with a range of activities for pre-school children to enjoy with their parents, caregivers, or grandparents. Playgroup activities may include:

  • Music and singing
  • Story time
  • Art and craft
  • Imaginative play

It is a relaxed, informal environment that is set up and run by parents and caregivers.








An important component of playgroup is having the time and space to further develop the bonds between a child and their parents or caregiver. We therefore require that the parents and caregivers stay to play and interact their children.

No child is too young for playgroup. All children from 0–5 years of age, including babies, love new experiences and will benefit from developing sensory, social and communication skills through the activities offered at playgroup.

Playgroup can also be a time for parents and caregivers to talk, make new friends and share parenting experiences.

Where:            Federation Room, Maroondah Federation Estate
Date:              Every Tuesday during the school terms
Time:              9:30am to 11:00am
