Playgroups @ KCBC


Playgroups are a safe, fun place to start your children on their educational journey. With supported programs of craft, music, play and more, your child is sure to have fun and make friends.

Our purpose-built Children’s centre caters for two types of playgroup sessions:

‘Little Stars’ Playgroup
offers a unique opportunity for Mums, Dads or Grandparents to interact with their child and other adults in a relaxed atmosphere. The sessions are full of fun, learning activities, crafts, snack time, free play time, singing, storytelling and much more. All equipment and materials are provided, and the session is run by a leader and assistant. Parents assist with packing up and cleaning up.

Sessions run from 9:30 to 11:30am on Tuesday and Thursday, for children from 18 months until attending 4 year old kinder. For these groups it is expected that you or another adult attends the session with your child. Numbers are limited to 12 families in each group and you must be enrolled to attend.

Fees for 2019: $70 per term, $60 for concession.
($90 per term for families with 2 children above 18 months, and $110 per term for families with 3 children above 18 months)

The ‘Explorers’ Rostered Playgroup is for three to four year olds and aims to provide a safe and caring environment for your child to develop social and independence skills, as well as providing fun learning opportunities through play. Parents do not stay unless they are rostered on duty (usually once a term). The program offers a variety of theme based activities for the children to enjoy, whilst following the same basic routine each session. Christian themes and songs are used as part of the program, especially at Easter and Christmas. A typical session includes free play (indoor & outdoor), creative work, puzzles, playdough, painting, singing, stories, morning tea, etc. The children sing grace before having their snack and are encouraged to use good manners.

Children must be three before starting in the Explorers Rostered Playgroup. Numbers are limited to 18 children in each group and each child must be enrolled to attend. Staff consists of a leader and an assistant.

Explorers groups run on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9:30am to 12:00pm. Children can attend either one or both sessions.

Fees for 2019: $160 per term (for one session a week), $150 for concession.
