Gumnuts Playgroup is a facility run by volunteer parents. We are open to our members all day, every day. We provide preschool children and their parents or carers with a natural indoor and outdoor space promoting socialisation and creative, independent unstructured play. Members can come at whatever time suits them to enjoy the wide variety of toys and activities. 

We are not currently providing any tours or and there are no trial memberships. 

Gumnuts Playgroup is different from other playgroups, in that it does NOT limit parents to a particular session only. Parents can bring any or all of their children to Gumnuts on weekends, or early mornings - whenever suits them.

Our annual Membership includes:
  • 7 days a week access to Gumnuts -open all day.
  • Use of fully equipped kitchen including tea and coffee supplies;
  • Upkeep, cleaning and maintenance of rooms, outdoor sheds and equipment and the purchase of new items;
  • ​Regular organized themed activities;
  • One membership for the entire family;
  • Membership runs from March to end of February and must be renewed each year to remain a member.

Gumnuts Playgroup was established back in 1984!
