Wonthaggi Baptist Church Playgroup

Encouraging development through play

Organised by a dedicated team of volunteers and families, we aim to provide a safe and caring environment for both parents and pre-school children.

We are a family centered playgroup for children aged 0-4 years old, encouraging development through play. We aim to provide a loving and caring environment for both parents and children to have a safe and happy time together. We offer a themed program where children are exposed to a variety of different activities, play environments and structured group time. Sessions typically include craft activities, painting, puzzles, floor play, story-time, music, and outside play.

As a church-led playgroup we celebrate Christmas and Easter, sing grace before morning tea, and sometimes include Christian themes/bible stories in our program. Occasionally we also run social events to provide opportunities for parents and children to meet other families and connect into a wider community.

Our Playgroup is run by volunteers from Wonthaggi Baptist Church and is held in the Children’s Ministry Centre cnr. McBride Ave & Broome Cres, Wonthaggi.
