North Ringwood Playgroup is a place where tiny tots and preschoolers aged from newborn to five years old can socialise, play and learn.

Welcome to all our new and returning members at North Ringwood Playgroup!

The committee and attendants welcome you to Term 2!
What a massive Term 1 we have had, where the committee worked so incredibly hard and you as members were so supportive in rolling out the two biggest fundraisers playgroup has. What a success. From the Cadbury fundraiser, we have earned over $1000, to ensure we can continue to purchase craft supplies, maintenance and general running costs for the playgroup. The committee is so excited to use the funds to purchase a roller coaster for the children to be entertained and have fun on during the cold and wet winter.

Thank you for all your support whether in time, donations or purchasing a sausage at the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle, we gained a $552 profit, which the committee would appreciate any suggestions for new toys, crafts or purchases that the money could be put towards.

The survey results were very interesting, and the committee have endeavoured to proactively follow recommendations from our members. The 2019 survey will be coming out this term and I really look forward to being informed about what our members like and what they would like to see improved during the year.

The upcoming fun event that you are welcome to attend is the Mother’s Day Zumba evening on Monday May 20th. If you can’t make the night there are raffle tickets available (you receive one ticket for free as a door prize) and you go into the draw to win over $300 worth of prizes!!!!

We are hoping to launch a new Tiny Tots session this term. With sensory, motor and fine motor skill activities targeted towards the 0-1 age group.

An update about the Pick My Project, is that after much discussion with Scouts and Maroondah City Council, works should begin in November starting with the roof.

Our wonderful purchasing officer is going on maternity leave and her role is open to anyone who is interested in coming onto the committee and would love to be engaged in the running of the playgroup with welcoming and supportive committee members.

I hope you have a wonderful Term 2.
