Our playgroup is a chance for the kids to explore different toys, interact with other kids and generally have fun running around and playing in a clean, large and safe space as well as a chance for parents to connect with other local parents.
Most of our playgroup is spent in free play and parents take turns organising a weekly group activity for the kids, such as craft, cooking or singing.
The hall provides a great, large, bright space for the kids to play in, with a wide range of toys for babies through to pre-schoolers. There is a covered outside area, which we have access to most weeks (as it is shared with another organisation).
Our playgroup is run by the parents/ carers attending. All families are required to participate in the roster for group activities (and morning tea for the Monday group), setting up and packing up toys and other equipment as well as other organisational duties from time to time.
Our sessions follow the NSW public school term dates, with four terms a year of between 9-11 weeks. The fee to attend is $20 per school term per family to cover the hall rent, toys, equipment and craft consumables. We are associated with Playgroup NSW and all families attending need to be members of Playgroup NSW.
Children attending playgroup must be accompanied by an adult and supervised at all times. Grandparents, nannies or other carers are most welcome. We respectfully ask that the accompanying parent/carer speak English for safety reasons and follow instructions from playgroup committee members.
Help your children learn to play in a FUN, SAFE, POSITIVE, LEARNING environment and meet new friends in your area.
We meet weekly during school terms to learn about child development and learning through play for children aged 0-5.
Meet and make friends with other parents in the area and exchange ideas and information.

The West Epping Playgroup is located at the West Epping Uniting Church but not run by the church, who has runs a different playgroup on Thursdays.
It’s a great playgroup with lots of nice toys, plenty of (indoor) space and a friendly group of mums (plus a few grandmothers!).
They currently have active groups on Monday and Tuesday and would love more members on either day. The committee are also keen to get Wednesday, Thursday and Friday active again, so if anyone is keen please contact us and we can support you to get started.
We meet in the hall under the church, enter via gates on Cnr of Carlingford Rd and Orchard St. You get two free visits to our playgroup to see if it is right for you. If you’re interested after the two visits, our term fee is $20, plus membership fee to Playgroup NSW ($39 annually).
Walk-ins are welcome but if coming on a Monday, avoid the 3rd Monday of the month as we have a park day due to other activities in the hall.

Each group has a roster to help with set-up, morning tea, fruit, craft and pack-up.
