Wonthaggi Baptist Church Playgroup
Encouraging development through play

Playgroup activities
Organised by a dedicated team of volunteers and families, we aim to provide a safe and caring environment for both parents and pre-school children.

We  are a family centered playgroup for children aged 0-4 years old, encouraging development through play. We aim to provide a loving and  caring environment for both parents and children to have a safe and  happy time together. We offer a themed program where children are  exposed to a variety of different activities, play environments and  structured group time. Sessions typically include craft activities,  painting, puzzles, floor play, story-time, music, and outside play.

As  a church-led playgroup we celebrate Christmas and Easter, sing grace  before morning tea, and sometimes include Christian themes/bible stories  in our program. Occasionally we also run social events to provide  opportunities for parents and children to meet other families and  connect into a wider community.

Our  Playgroup is run by volunteers from Wonthaggi Baptist Church and is  held in the Children’s Ministry Centre cnr. McBride Ave & Broome  Cres, Wonthaggi.
