Playgroups In Perth

When you’re new to Perth or a first time mum without a wide support network, finding a group of other mums or parents and their children to hang out with on a regular basis can be a godsend. Not only is a playgroup a great way for the kids to have a play with their peers, but it’s a means for mums to interact and chat with other parents, get out of the house and build a local network of friends and support.

There are different playgroups dotted around Perth, and it may take a bit of trial and error to find one you and your child enjoy and people you get along well with. Here are some playgroup associations and services in Perth.

Locations throughout WA

Playgroup WA is a not-for-profit organisation that governs around 500 playgroups throughout WA and is aimed at children aged 0 to 5 and their parents or carers. It is a great place to meet other parents in your area and a safe place to let the kids play and interact with other children. If you need more reasons to join a playgroup, read the Perth Mums Group article on our website. To find a playgroup in your area, go to Find a playgroup on the PlaygroupWA website.

Meerilinga Playgroups are a way to get in touch with other families around you and make lasting friendships while negotiating those important early years of your children’s lives. Playgroups are held at Meerilinga Children and Family Centres, which have both indoor and outdoor play facilities, plus a kitchen and can even be hired for functions or meetings.

You can find a list of Meerilinga's playgroups here.

Smart Buddies Playgroup
One of three free local playgroups run by the Roseworth Child and Parent Centre thanks to the support of The Smith Family, a children's charity focused on helping disadvantaged Australian children to get the most out of their education. The other two playgroups are located at Koondoola Primary School and Hudson Park Primary School. You can read more here.

The above resources are just a few of the playgroups available to Perth mums, and are a good starting point for new mums. You might even find other playgroups through Facebook, Gumtree, through community services such as your midwife or child health nurse, or even from word of mouth from other parents.
