Mercedes College Playgroup

Mercedes College Playgroup is for children aged 0-5 and their parents or guardians.

Regardless of if you already have older children at the College, have registered to enrol your first child in Reception, or are still considering options for your child’s education, we invite you to join us. 

Children and their parents or guardians are invited to attend Playgroup each week, where we will learn and play through a range of structured activities designed to foster the relationship between parents, children and learning.

All activities are age appropriate and strengthen the fundamental early childhood developmental skills. Some of these include fine/gross motor skills, language skills, collaborative skills, sensory skills and social skills.

The playgroup encourages free play where children are encouraged to choose, experiment and play at their own pace. Playgroup is held on Wednesday mornings during school terms between 9:30am - 11:00am.


Playgroup Cost

  • $5 for one child per session ($45 per term)
  • $7 for two or more children per session ($65 per term)

Playgroup Facilities

Playgroup is held at Mercedes College in the Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) room. We provide indoor and outdoor activities for children to participate in free play and to enjoy the school facilities.

Parents are welcome to help themselves to tea and coffee and bathroom facilities are situated next to the OSHC room. We ask that everyone helps to pack up towards the end of a session, before stories and songs.

Playgroup is currently at capacity for Term 1 2018, but we invite you to join our waiting list in the event a position opens or for Terms 2, 3 and 4 (positions available to be confirmed closer to each term).
