We are a local playgroup run by members for members. At Shenton Park Playgroup we provide children and parents with a safe and happy place to connect, socialise, play and grow.
Shenton Park Playgroup was established in 1991 as a not-for-profit Incorporated Association. We are a member of Playgroup WA and are run by a voluntary management committee comprised of members who are elected at our Annual General Meeting, and we encourage members to participate where they can.
Our Playgroup provides a great space for families to meet and play with children of similar ages. We have a fully self-contained facility with kitchen, air-con, craft supplies and indoor & outdoor (shaded) play equipment.
HOW IT WORKS
Being a member of Shenton Park Playgroup involves attending a nominated 2 hour session with your child/children. The sessions are not structured, we provide the facilities and it is up to the parents in the group how they want to structure activities during the session. Our Playgroup sessions are for children from birth to school age. Sessions are non-exclusive and are open to new members (both individuals and mother's groups) at any time during the year.
The Playgroup is funded predominantly through membership fees with occasional fundraising drives and grants. We have a constitution that governs how the playgroup operates. A copy of the constitution is available in the members area on the website.
Membership fees cover the costs of running the playgroup which includes general maintenance, new toys & repairing existing ones, arts and crafts, and tea/coffee for parents. It is also used to fund activities hosted by the playgroup such as our annual Christmas party.
