West Ryde Wombats is a community playgroup for children 0-5yrs held at West Ryde Community Hall on Monday , Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:30am to 11:30am.
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.
