Elwood Community Playgroup

Elwood Community Playgroup is a not-for-profit, playgroup for children aged 0 to 5 years old, run by a committee of volunteer parents. We are open Monday to Friday, 9am-6pm offering a place for families to feel at home - to connect, to play, to grow. Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for updates.



Playgroup Sessions  

Elwood Playgroup members can join 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.

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.
