Axe Creek Community Playgroup


Playgroup is a place for you and your child to interact with other mums, dads, grandparents and caregivers and their children. Playgroup provides opportunities for play and learning. Your child will develop new skills and gain confidence by interacting with other children. No child is too young for playgroup. All children from 0-5 years, including babies, love new experiences and benefit from developing sensory, social and communication skills through activities at playgroup.
