Elwood Community Playgroup

Elwood Community Playgroup is a not-for-profit, non facilitated playgroup for children aged 0 to 5 years old, run by a committee of volunteer parents. Located at 51 Broadway, Elwood, we are open Monday to Friday 9am-6pm offering a place for families to feel at home - to connect, to play, to grow.




Our Centre  

We have 2 playrooms and 2 outdoor playgrounds. Our Front Room is designed for children aged 0-12 months and our Back Room for ages 12 months to 5 years. Both playrooms have an array of fantastic age-appropriate toys and games to entertain your little one. We also have a fully equipped kitchen, highchairs, baby change facilities and mini toddler toilets/sinks.



Opening Hours:

Monday to Friday: 9am-6pm for Groups and Open House (Timetable)

Saturday & Sundays: for Private Weekend Bookings

Playgroup Sessions  

Elwood Playgroup members are set up in a group with children of a similar age; groups meet for a 2 hour play session once per week. Alternatively members may choose to attend as a Casual Member, meaning that they are not assigned to a group. With your membership you can also attend our Open House Sessions, Dad’s Playgroup on Sundays and fabulous Member Events.

Our Open House sessions are either All Ages or Age Specific Sessions.  Age Specific sessions enable members to connect with other members with children the same age as their child.

If you would like to have a trial play with us please fill in a Membership Enquiryor if you are a current member who would like to join a new group please contact our Memberships Team.
