Sparkles Playgroups are run through Camberwell Baptist Church for children aged 0-4 years old on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 9.30am – 11.15am in the Will St Hall. The Aim of Sparkles Playgroup is to provide an opportunity for mothers / fathers /carers and their preschool children to all have fun socializing and learning through playtime in a loving and caring environment.

During Activity time children can choose out of a variety of craft activities (playdoh, making craft, painting, drawing, puzzles) or may choose to play freely in the home corner or with other toys. During free playtime, the hall is set up with a wide variety of equipment including climbing frames, ride on toys, tunnels, ball play and much more. During story and singing times we ask that parents/carers provide a role model children by sitting with them quietly and encouraging them to listen and participate in the story & singing times.
Children sit down and eat morning tea together. We ask that all parents bring a small piece of fresh fruit to share. Milk and water will also be served to the children. Please be aware that we operate a NO NUTS policy.
As we are part of a Baptist Church, our programme does, at times, have some Christian themes and we do say grace before the children’s morning tea. Christmas and Easter will also be celebrated within the programme.
Sparkles Playgroup would not be able to run without the amazing volunteer leaders and assistants who work tirelessly to provide the children with an amazing programme each week. All have current Working With Children Checks. We also ask that parents/ carers assist with sharing some basic duties each week. Some of these include preparation of fruit, paint pack up and washing up from morning tea.
Playgroup Fees are $60 per child per term and are payable at the beginning of each term.
