Playgroup is for families with children aged up to five. It’s a chance to make new friends, play and join in fun activities.
Whitford Family Centre hosts two playgroup sessions every Monday to Friday throughout the school term. You can attend from 9-11am or 11.15am-1.15pm.
Everyone helps out at Playgroup and parents use a roster system to organise who’ll prepare fruit for the children, clean up or run activities like painting, crafts or reading stories.
Your children will also get to enjoy the sandpit, swings and slide in the undercover outdoor play area.
Playgroup fees are $50 per family per term, although you’re welcome to a free trial session to see if you like it. The above includes and covers all art and craft supplies, play equipment, toys and adults’ tea and coffee facilities.
New families are required to pay an annual membership of $35 to Playgroup WA and an annual membership of $5 to Whitford Family Centre. This can be done in our office when enrolling.
Fees are non-refundable.
Please pay by cash, cheque or Direct Debit (there are no EFTPOS/credit card facilities) during office hours (Monday to Friday 9am-1pm).
Already paid Playgroup WA fees to another playgroup (this year)? Simply present your membership card!
What people are saying about our Playgroup...
“After trialling a couple of small Playgroup’s in my local area a few years back, I came across Whitfords family playgroup and felt comfortable here straight away. It was the perfect atmosphere to bring my only child who was 1 at the time, so she could start building some social skills with other kids around her age. The staff at Whitfords family centre are helpful and friendly, there’s a huge range of different activities and outdoor toys to play with and I have made some really great friends here myself! My daughter is now nearly 4 and still loves it here and although she’s moving onto Kindy next year, I’ll definitely be staying on to put my 9 month old son through Whitfords family playgroup until he’s ready for Kindy too! ” – Parent
