Playgroup

Welcome to All Saints’ College Playgroup from Playgroup WA!

Playgroups offer a fantastic opportunity for young children to learn and develop valuable life skills through play and are a great way for parents to connect and make friends with other families living in the local area.

Session times:  Tuesdays (playgroup trial 8/5, 15/5, 22/5)

Venue:                  All Saints’ College – Lower Theatre

Contact:               yolande.cugley@playgroupwa.com.au

 

Fees:

Most school playgroups need to collect a nominal amount for consumables (playdough ingredients, craft supplies). This is decided as a group and could be $2 per week or an amount per term. There will be no fee charged during the trial period.

In addition, you will also need to pay a one-off fee of $35 for annual membership to Playgroup WA (Inc) or $15 if you have a health care card by your 3rd visit to Playgroup in 2017.  To be covered by insurance all families need to be members of Playgroup WA.  Playgroup WA membership is an annual membership that goes from the 1st February every year to the 31st January in the next year. Each family pays only one membership fee per year regardless of the number of playgroups attended and the number of children in the family.

Playgroup Session

Many family playgroups run on informal lines. We’ve found the following very flexible timetable useful as a guide to a session.

9:00 am                      Sign attendance sheet and set up.

9:00 – 10:00 am    Free play (indoor &outdoor) plus simple guided activity (craft).  Some stations set up, e.g. playdough, dress ups, baby area, car mat, etc.

10:00 am                   Morning tea time (children bring own morning tea and will eat together on the picnic mat)

10:15 am                    Music/Rhyme/Story time

10:30 am                    All parents pack up and goodbye time.  Sign attendance sheet on way out.

Please bring your own child’s water bottle and healthy snack.  Coffee and other beverages will be available to purchase from the on-site café or byo.

Rosters

Everyone helps out where needed with running the playgroup session. Parents are needed to help with set up as well as tidying up at the end of the session. Please put your hand up if you have a great craft idea or would like to facilitate a music session etc.!!

Rules

Playgroup runs during term time and will break for school and public holidays.

Hot drinks:          Please be mindful of the young children

Safety:                   Each parent is responsible for their own child’s behaviour and safety.

Sick Children:      If your child is unwell they should not attend playgroup.

Signing in:            Please sign in and out each week on the attendance sheet.

Nappy Change:    Please take used nappies home with you to be disposed.


All Saints’ College Playgroup will be run entirely by parent volunteers. Your input is valued and appreciated. Parent volunteers to help coordinate the playgroup are still required so please put your hand up if this is something you can help with. Yolande from Playgroup WA will help facilitate the first 3 sessions of playgroup for 2018 and will be able to answer all your questions!

Being a part of your child’s early experiences is precious and playgroup is a great way for you to influence those all-important early years and still have time for a coffee and chat with friends.

We hope you enjoy your time at Playgroup!
