Our playgroups provide parents and carers with the opportunity to meet socially and for their children to enjoy activities that encourage their development and social skills.

MacKillop’s supported playgroups are available to families living in Melbourne’s metropolitan western region.

With a focus on multicultural families, the playgroups bring together children and their families of different cultures. Staff at the playgroup can connect parents and families to MacKillop's parenting teams and supports in the community.

We provide guest speakers throughout each term to speak on topics parents have told us they would find helpful to hear.

Our playgroups are free to attend and morning tea is provided. Bookings are not required.
