About Collins Street Centre Playgroup

Collins Street Centre Playgroup (CSCPG) is located at the Collins Street Civic Centre on the corner of Collins Street and Shaftsbury Avenue in South Perth, Western Australia. The Collins Street Centre facilities are well established and maintained with a dedicated playroom full of toys, books, arts and crafts for all ages, as well as an enclosed courtyard and grass area, sandpit, new playground with a shed full of outside toys provided by the CSCPG. The Centre also has a fully functional kitchen off the main hall with both a microwave and stove/oven facilties. CSCPG provide playgroup mums and dads with tea, coffee, hot chocolate and sugar as part of their membership fees.

The CSCPG charter is to provide a sense of community within our playgroups, and to help achieve this we hold several special events throughout the year. These events are open to all members and often include family and friends

Collins Street Playgroup is run entirely by its members and without member participation it would simply not exist. Each individual playgroup session runs slightly differently, and often varies depending on the age of its members. Group Coordinators facilitate the playgroup structure at the beginning of each year and set rosters to work in with the activities set up. Help is always available from the Playgroup committee to ensure that groups are functioning well and that all members are getting the most out of their time at the Centre. Our group numbers are limited due to council requirements, however this allows CSCPG to ensure maximum participation from all group members can occur in a safe environment.

At CSCPG we have a dedicated committee person who is responsible for setting a craft activity on a weekly basis during school term. All of the activities that are set can be adapted to cover most ages so that fun is had by all.

Collins Street Centre Playgroup is a member of Playgroup Western Australia. Each of our members are therefore also members of Playgroup WA and are entitled to special discounts and benefits. For more information visit www.playgroupaustralia.com.au/wa.

There are so many benefits of being a member of a playgroup. It is great for parents/caregivers to meet other parents/caregivers to share ideas, information and experiences. It's also an opportunity to develop new friendships, develop a support network, become a part of your local community and of course have lots of fun playing and learning together. It is fantastic for children to play with and among other children, participate in new play experiences, interact with other adults, make local friends, learn simple rules and routines, learn more about the world around them and improve their social and communication skills. Young children learn through play and playgroup is the perfect environment to encourage this.
