Who can join - and how?
Families with pre-school aged children are welcome to join.
You can join an existing group or start a new one with friends or members of your Parents’ Group. We try to group children of a similar age.
You are welcome to attend two trial sessions prior to joining.
Fill in a Contact us form or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss available sessions with our enrolments officer.
What are my responsibilities as a member?
As Woodend Playgroup is solely managed by volunteers (all parents of children currently attending playgroup), we ask that members volunteer at least once a year to assist in fundraising and events.
This might include baking for a cake stall, helping out at a working bee, or getting behind the BBQ at a sausage sizzle.
In 2020, all fundraising efforts will be contributing to our landscaping improvements (watch this space!).
The Committee is elected each year at our AGM, and all positions are open for nomination. Each year we are excited to welcome new parents and carers into Committee roles to bring new energy and fresh ideas. No particular skills are required, just enthusiasm for making Playgroup the best it can be.
Being a part of the Woodend Playgroup Committee is a rewarding experience. Committee roles provide opportunities for social and professional networking, and can be a great creative outlet. Portfolios can also be shared between two or more people.
