We understand that at times your child may need the support of a comfort toy. We have a number of soft toys that your child can use.

Little Big Book Club

We distribute the Little Big Book Club preschool reading pack. This pack helps your child learn through reading, singing, playing and talking. We are excited to share the reading pack with you and your child as a lot of our curriculum involves key themes from within the pack.


Playgroup is important for developing a sense of belonging and for making the connection between home and kindy. It is led by parent volunteers.

Families from the area come together each week during term time for fun, socialisation and play-based learning.


Friday mornings during term time from 9.00am to 11.00am, except for the last week of each term.


This program costs $3 per session per family.

What to bring

Children need to bring these items each day:

  • a sun hat for each child and adult
  • a serve of fruit or vegetables for snack time (no nut products - please also check with the playgroup volunteer coordinator for any other food allergies).
