Camberwell Structured Playgroup

Our Playgroup sessions run from 9.30-12pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, during school term, but not on public holidays. It is usually possible to join more than one group. These sessions target 1-4 year olds; however younger and older siblings are most welcome with their parent's or carers.

We offer a range of toys, indoor and outdoor play, art and craft activities for the children to explore with the assistance of their parents or carers. Songs, stories and a time for eating are also included in the session. There is a kitchen area to make a 'cuppa'. Playgroup is a wonderful way to meet other people and make new friends.

What to bring to Playgroup:

  • Lunch or snack (eg: fruit, sandwich, cheese and a drink). We have a healthy food policy and ask that sweets, cakes, biscuits, chips etc are avoided except  on birthdays and other special events.

  • A change of clothes as well as a hat and sunscreen during terms 1 & 4 and jacket or warm clothing during terms 2 & 3.

  • CSP has a strict NO peanut/nut policy for children and adults. Please do not bring foods which contain nuts or nut products, eg peanut butter, nutella, some muesli bars.

Why attend CSP?
Our Playgroup nurtures the well-being of both adults and children in a safe and supportive environment. It's a wonderful place for each person's unique contribution to be respected, acknowledged and appreciated.

Playgroup encourages children to learn and develop through play, offering play experiences that are:

  • child-centred
  • fun for all including babies
  • physical activity that also supports gross and fine motor skill development
  • a balanced range of experiences from which children can choose freely
  • appropriate to children's stages of development
  • supportive of shared play
  • focused on building skills and self-esteem
  • non-competitive
  • self-expressive through art, crafts and construction
  • supportive of each child's language development .
