Local Childcare

Elwood Community Playgroup is not a childcare centre. However there are plenty of childcare centres and services in Elwood and we have listed these for you.

We recommend that you take a look at the centres before putting your name on the waiting list. Ask them lots of questions so that you feel comfortable with the centre. Then put your name down as soon as you can, as most of them have long waiting lists.
