Who can join - and how?

Families with pre-school aged children are welcome to join. 

We are inclusive – we value and celebrate diversity and people of all abilities.

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 one trial session prior to joining.

Fill in an enrolment form with session preferences to get the process started, or get in touch here.

Session times and availability

Woodend Playgroup operates Monday to Friday with two sessions every morning that families will be allocated into.

• 9am – 11am

• 11am – 1pm

Every afternoon from 1pm–5pm is an open session, free for any member to drop into (in addition to or instead of your set session). You are welcome to attend as many open sessions as you wish throughout the week. 

Alternatively if the set session times (9am and 11am) don't work for your family, you are welcome to enroll as an 'open member' and only attend during the open times

Please get in touch to find out if there is a session that will suit you!

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 and assisting with a cake stall, helping out at a working bee, getting behind the BBQ at a sausage sizzle or helping out at a Playgroup event.

We use the funds raised to put on awesome events and also to maintain and improve our facilities - whether that be landscaping, painting, purchasing new play equipment and toys.



The Committee is made up of parents who volunteer their time to keep Playgroup running smoothly. Meetings are held at Playgroup on the first Tuesday of the month.

We are always 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.
