Playgroup is a great place to meet new people and spend some quality time with your children as they participate in stimulating activities alongside other children.

Awabakal operates several supported playgroups for children aged 0 - 6 years and their parents/carers across various locations in Newcastle, the Hunter and Lake Macquarie and Port Stephens.

The activities provided at playgroups include painting, playdough, arts and crafts, story time, building and outdoor activities. Playgroup is also a great place for your child to meet new friends and to interact with other community members.

Our playgroups are staffed by qualified early childhood educators who can provide support and ideas to families about their child and his/her development. Parenting programs are also offered periodically at each group.


Awabakal is proud to provide this service to our community free of charge.
