Welcome to Caloundra Baby Playgroup

Baby Playgroup is for all families with a baby aged birth to 12 months. Baby Playgroup is a time for you and your child to share, learn and grow together whilst meeting other parents. The group is facilitated by Play Matters staff. It's a great opportunity to transition from Mums group to Baby Playgroup and beyond. Bring your new friends with you and meet some other local families. Or, come alone and we will be waiting to make you feel welcome. Baby Playgroup gives new parents a chance to meet and discuss ideas, challenges and the joy and sometimes frustration of parenting. Enjoy various informal parent workshops, age-appropriate play experiences such as sensory and messy play. Great venue at the Girls Guides Hut, 78 Arthur Street, Caloundra. Look for the pink and purple Playgroup Meets here signs. The venue is airconditioned with easy access on one level. We meet 10am to 11.30am. Don't worry if you are running late. We know what it can be like leaving home with a baby! This is a FREE service with membership to Play Matters also FREE for families. https://playmatters.org.au/play-stars. The group does not meet during school holidays. We look forward to welcoming you and your baby!
