Greystanes Groovers are very well equipped, with numerous toys and activities to engage children from babies to school age. The hall at Nemesia Street Park is very well suited for playgroup as it has a large open area inside as well as a full fenced area outside.
When attending Greystanes Groovers you can expect your child to enjoy a variety of different toys, from slides, balance beams and mini trampolines to toy car garages and cars to toy prams and dolls. A variety of activities are also on offer, including musical instruments, dress ups, a toy kitchen and building blocks. Most weeks (working off a prearranged roster) one parent will arrange a craft activity, anything from simple colouring in to constructing items and decorating them with paint and glitter.
While at Greystanes Groovers there is time for morning tea. We ask that everyone bring along a piece of fruit and this will be chopped up and shared on a platter by all the children. Morning tea for the adults is arranged by just one parent each week on a rostered basis.
To participate in Greystanes Groovers you must be a member of Playgroup NSW. In addition to this, $28 per family per term is payable to Greystanes Groovers to cover the costs of hiring the hall and running the playgroup (replacing toys, craft materials and cleaning items).
If you would like to know more, or come along and visit one of our sessions we would love to meet you. Please contact us and we can arrange a time with you!
