Playgroups are a great way for your kids to interact with other children in a fun and safe environment, while giving you the opportunity to interact with other parents.
Playgroup WA is here to help you find suitable playgroup vacancies for you and your family. There are hundreds of playgroups in WA for you to join, so there's sure to be one close by.
The Playgroup WA membership fee for 2018 is $35 (Concession Card $15) which gives you access to a number of great benefits and discounts.
Additionally, playgroups collect their own fees (paid weekly, quarterly or annually) to cover any running costs ie. venue hire; consumables and other supplies. If you have any questions about fees, first ask at playgroup or call Playgroup WA on 1800 171 882.
Are you ready to join a playgoup?
Simply follow the steps below:
Use our find a playgroup search (top right) to create a list of playgroups in your area (just add your suburb and hit enter!).
Remember to zoom out to bring up more groups. If the group you are interested in does not have contact details published please call our Hotline on 1800 171 882 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. (As the groups are run by volunteers some committees choose not to publish their contact details on the Playgroup WA website.)
Make direct contact with the listed playgroups (by phone or email) and ask for details about what happens at playgroup; days and times the group meets; fees; which families attend and the ages of the children and anything else you might want to know before you book in a time to visit with your child. You can attend two sessions and then are required to pay on the third visit to ensure that you have the Playgroup WA Insurance coverage. Without payment you can no longer attend the group.
Visit the playgroup to see what goes on for yourself. Use the facilities & meet the families. When you know it’s a good fit – ask about becoming a member and your playgroup session leader will then ask you to complete an application form and pay the necessary fees (the Playgroup WA Annual Membership fee is $35).
Once your fees have been forwarded to Playgroup WA you’ll receive an email from us with your unique membership number and receive exclusive Playgroup WA member benefits throughout the year!
Please note: If you wish to start a new playgroup, we can provide information and resources to guide you through the process.
