About Us

Kippax Kids Playgroups
If you would like to join a playgroup or have a parent’s group/playgroup that would like to become a Kippax Kids playgroup, please contact Elena on [email protected] or 6254 1733.
Kippax Kids playgroups are a great place to meet new people while your children play and make friends. Parents and carers build friendship networks, share ideas and parenting experiences and provide support to one another while children develop social, cognitive and motor skills through informal and structured play.
Kippax Kids groups run each week during school term with each session running for two hours. There is a $4 weekly fee per family to support the facility and supply of materials. You are asked to bring a piece of fruit to share for morning or afternoon tea and contribute to activities to encourage learning, communication and relationship building.
Our purpose built playroom and outdoor play area has toys, lots of craft resources, a sandpit, play equipment and outdoor toys such as bikes and tea and coffee making facilities.
Each group is run by a volunteer convenor with a volunteer helper to provide additional support. During a Kippax Kids session, there is time for indoor and outdoor free play, an art or craft time, time to eat food together and some groups have a  singing or story time.

Drop-In Playgroup
Would you love to come along to a playgroup but are busy and can’t attend a group regularly? Or would you like to be able to pop in to a playgroup for a short time? Then the Drop-In Playgroup is for you. You can come as often as you want, for whatever length of time that you would like.
Our Drop-In Playgroup runs each Thursday afternoon from 12.30pm – 2.30pm during school term. There is no cost and afternoon tea is provided. Come along, make new friends and spend time with your children playing, doing craft and singing and dancing.
