Due to COVID-19, Maidstone and Maribyrnong Community Centres are currently closed and all playgroups will therefore not take place. Braybrook Community Centre will return in Term 1 2021. Maidstone Community Centre will be providing playgroup activities you can do at home with your child. View a list of programs that are being offered online during this time here.

Playgroups provide parents, caregivers and their children the opportunity to meet for interaction and fun. They also provide opportunities for children to learn through play, participate in new experiences, develop and increase social skills, and learn sharing, co-operation and simple routines.

Come and meet local families and develop new friendships, and relax and talk in a friendly environment and share your experiences and ideas.

The playgroups listed below are run at our community centres.

Note: All playgroup participants are required to become members of Playgroup Victoria for public liability insurance coverage.
