Playgroup is available to hire at the weekend, during the school holidays or in the afternoon during the week (4 hour slots – 8.30am-12.30pm or 1-5pm), for both members and non-members - so feel free to tell your friends and family.
Playgroup is a great place to host childrens' birthday parties, host a catch up with your antenatal group/coffee group, or hold another family or community event. If you're a member and you miss Playgroup during school holidays, you could arrange to meet up with some others from your usual day.
We have an awesome outdoor playground, including a water table and sandpit, and inside we have a number of toys, books, puzzles, slides, ride on toys - even a roller coaster! The Playgroup toys are designed for ages 5 and under. Sandpit toys are locked in the shed opposite the sandpit. The key is on the key ring just inside the front door. Feel free to use these, but please remember to return to the shed after use and lock the shed.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with oven, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, stove top, hot water zip, coffee plungers and limited cutlery and serving items. There are a number of children's tables and chairs and some limited adult seating. You need to supply your own tea, coffee, milk, food and we suggest you supply your own paper plates and cups etc as crockery and utensils are limited.
The playgroup can hold no more than 25 children (plus caregivers) at a time for weekend parties and a maximum of 50 people (including babies).
The hire is for 4 hours - 8.30am - 12.30pm or from 1pm – 5pm.
It’s $40 for members and $55 for non-members. Payment is required at the time of booking via online banking and is not confirmed until we have received payment.
Please note the following cancellation policy. If a booking is cancelled during the week before the booking, there will be no refund and full payment for the room hire will be required. If a booking is cancelled 8-14 days before the booking, 50% payment of the room hire will be required. Bookings cancelled 3 weeks or more from the booking will receive a full room hire refund. If a booking needs to be changed to another date, this can be done at no extra cost if it is two weeks or more from the booking date. Bookings moved within the two weeks prior to the booking date will incur an extra 50% room hire fee, in addition to the full room hire rate for the new date.

This includes vacuuming the floors, wiping down the tables and bench tops, putting on the dishwasher if required and putting furniture and toys back where they belong ready for the next party. There is a vacuum cleaner in the storeroom, beside the kitchen. Broom and mop (if necessary) are in the kitchen.
