Busselton Family Playgroup

A great place where you and your kids can

Our wonderful facilities provide opportunities to play inside and outside in a relaxed, safe and friendly environment.

About us

The Busselton Family Playgroup is based at The People Place (formerly known as the Busselton Family Centre) on Kent Street in Busselton. We have a great facility with large indoor and outdoor play areas and lots of toys that your kids are sure to love.

Our sessions run five days a week (Monday to Friday) during the school terms and all sessions run from 9:30 till 11:30am. Playgroup is aimed at children between the ages of 0 and 5 years old. Our Friday morning session is a "baby-only" session, especially for babies who are under 12-months of age at the start of Term 1, 2019.

A typical playgroup session involves free play, an adult supervised craft activity and morning tea.

Membership

Fees are $35 per term for the first child in your family and $10 per term for each child thereafter. This covers attendance in only one session (day) per week. Fees can be paid annually or by term. If you choose to pay annually but want to cancel your membership during the year, a refund will be provided for the unused portion of your membership fees.

Trial Visits

Potential new members are welcome to trial up to two free sessions over a two week period.

This gives those interested the opportunity to meet members from two different groups and get a good idea of how Playgroup runs.
