Ashburton Baptist Church Playgroup


ABC Playgroup offers a range of indoor and outdoor activities for babies to kinder age children including painting, crafts, sand and water play, role-play, climbing, movement and singing.

Playgroup operates during school terms and we are currently running one session on Wednesday from 10:00am to 11:30am. A Tuesday session may be added throughout the year.

Funding & Fees
Playgroup is managed by a committee of volunteers and is financed by parent fees. For 2021 the fees are $100 per family per year (or $50 per semester). This money is put towards the upgrade and maintenance of toys and equipment, supplies for craft activities, tea and coffee, special events and a contribution to the church to help cover utilities.

General Information
Parents/carers bring morning tea for their own children.
Tea and coffee are provided for parents/carers to help themselves.
We generally have free play until 11:05am, followed by morning tea for the children and then singing.
As a parent run group we have a roster for the various duties (vacuuming, washing dishes, washing paint/glue brushes). Everyone is responsible for general packing up.
All parents/carers are responsible for the supervision of their own children at all times.

Places are limited so contact the church office for more information.
